The annual Holmfirth Arts Festival is one of Yorkshire's best small Festivals.
Over the next couple of years we are going to explore a new format, with an outdoor Festival in our usual mid June slot - 16-19 June 2022 - but with indoor events and performative walks happening throughout the year between April and October.
New partnerships with SWYFT NHS Creative Minds and Totally Inclusive People will help us to develop access and inclusion for all at the Festival, and a new partnership with Kirklees Year of Music 2023 will enable us to test two new projects in new outdoor spaces in the landscape in August and October 2022. We will again produce the annual Steve Sykes Memorial Commission for new Art in the Holme Valley - this year we will be seeking responses to the landscape from emerging artists of any discipline
Your donation wil help us to to bring excellent artists, events and community engagement projects to Holmfirth and the Holme Valley throughout 2022
