Hebden Bridge Arts Festival

For those of my followers who live in or close to Yorkshire, here are the latest details of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival:

We're pleased to announce that the first tickets for the 2015 Festival are now on sale. Helen Marnie (known as Marnie for solo projects) of Ladytron comes to the Trades Club on Saturday 27 June and tickets are now available online (see full details below).

We'll be announcing programme news as we have it between now and May 11, when all tickets go on sale - so keep an eye out (and share with your friends!)

We're also very excited to share that this year we will be launching our very first Arts Festival 'micro-commissions', inviting artists to respond to this year's landscape theme, 'the hills are alive'. The funding pot is modest but the ambition limitless - and we're hoping to seed work we can develop with local artists in future years.

Finally, this month also sees the launch of our very first individual giving scheme. If you like what we do and would like to support us, you can now donate online. Whatever you can contribute will help keep the festival flourishing - find out more on the website.

Until next time.....

Ladytron singer Marnie will be coming to The Trades Club on the 27th June as part of her 2015 European tour. More details here

Saturday 27 June, Doors open 8pm

Got a creative idea?

The festival is committed to helping new and established artists so are inviting applications for two ‘Micro Commission’ pots of up to £250 to help them develop their idea.

The commissioned work will platform/premiere at this summer’s Festival (26 June – 5 July) and artists and arts organisations will have the chance to collaborate, show new work in new and/or unusual spaces and develop their own audiences. Read more here



Your festival needs you!

We've launched our very first Individual Giving Scheme with a view to raising £2000 towards Festival activity here in our town. We’re asking individuals like you to help us get there by making a one off or monthly donation to help keep the festival flourishing! Go on!


Have your say

We'd love to hear your feedback and ideas for future festivals. Email your thoughts and suggestions to Helen, our Artistic Director, at
