Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and Handmade Parade

Hebden Bridge Arts Festival: 21 – 30 June 2019                                                                                                                                                    

Celebrating Hebden Bridge’s quirky community and showcasing the town’s unique creativity and landscape, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival promotes artistic talent of all kinds from near and far in a flurry of activities held annually at the end of June.

Each year the Festival explores a different theme. In 2016 it celebrated Hebden Bridge’s rich textile history under the banner of Trouser Town. In 2017 the theme was Water and in 2018 Non-Conformism. The theme for 2019 is Virtual Valley.

Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade

Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade was started in 2008 by Andrew Kim, a puppeteer specialising in giant puppets and large-scale community performances. A key event in the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, this annual extravaganza  draws on  the talents of professional carnival artists, puppeteers, makers, musicians, stilt walkers and performers working with local schools and community groups.
