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


Holmfirth Arts Festival is preceded by an extensive community engagement programme and a series of bi-monthly events in venues across the Holme Valley throughout the year.

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

CREATE - nurture creativity in all forms

CELEBRATE - people and place

CARE - welcoming, mindful of each other and custodians of our environment

CONNECT - people to each other and to the places they live
