Holmfirth Arts Festival 2020

About the event

In light of social distancing measures and thanks to additional funding from Arts Council England Emergency fund, Holmfirth Arts Festival is going online in September.?

The online festival will comprise a series of three short magazine programmes on each of the three days in September. There will be a host who will introduce and chat around the performances, some of which will be live and others pre-recorded, but we aim to provide amazing entertainment that you can enjoy with friends and family from the comfort of your sofa.?

As can be expected from Holmfirth Arts Festival, it’s an amazing programme. We have award winning comedian Kieran Hodgson, originally from Holmfirth, new cello music from Slow Cooked Louie, written especially for this year's Festival based on a JG Ballard’s environmental novel, The Drowned World. Spectacular outdoor shows - Urban Astronaut, The Whale and Kit and Kaboodle from Thingumajig Theatre will also be featured. Biscuithead and the Biscuit Badgers will bring the on line festi
