Holmfirth Arts & Music Ltd formed in 2007 (incorporated in March 2010) with the aim of supporting and encouraging the development of art and music in Holmfirth and the Holme Valley. It is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.


Its major project is the annual Holmfirth Arts Festival - one of Yorkshire's best small Festivals.


Holmfirth Arts Festival celebrates creativity in the landscape by:

  • Commissioning new work and supporting diverse artists

  • Inspiring diverse communities to engage with the arts and their heritage

  • Caring for the environment

  • Connecting locally, regionally and internationally


The festival includes an extensive community engagement programme and, since 2022, an extended
programme from May through to October, programming events in rural venues and outdoor spaces across
the Holme Valley.

Our Values underpin how we work across all aspects of our organisation including programming and how we work with each other.

  • nurturing CREATIVITY in all forms

  • CELEBRATING people and place

  • CARING  for each other and our environment

  • CONNECTING people to each other and to the places they live
