Why come to Holmfirth Festival of Folk?
Holmfirth is a small pennine town which comes to life during the Festival of Folk. There has been a folk festival in Holmfirth for about 30 years. The Festival committee has been responsible for the last nine years and the festival has gone from strength to strength.We pride ourselves on producing a community based festival involving schools, local talent, most businesses in the town and, of course, a small army of volunteers. Our income is miniscule compared to most festivals on the circuit and derived mainly from sponsorship and grants, public collections and to a lesser degree, ticket sales.
The community plays a really big part in making this festival special. Here are some of the highlights:
Great Live Music
Every year the town puts on an amazing line up of musicians. There are a variety of paying and free concerts across the weekend, in both large and intimate venues. The line up will include old festival favourites and lots of new or local talent.
Dancing & Street Entertainment
Holmfirth is proud to host a great variety of dance teams every year and we also have a wonderful array of free outside entertainment. The procession through the town on a Saturday afternoon is a particular highlight.
