Hebden Bridge Arts Festival - June

Details of Hebden Bridge Arts Festival have been released and tickets are now on sale:

Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2017: All tickets now on sale...
The full Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2017 programme has now been announced, and tickets are on sale! All the town will be a stage with a feast of visual arts, music, comedy, spoken word, two days of fantastic free street theatre, lots to see and take part in and a whole weekend of Open Studios and Gardens.

Ticketed highlights include Leeds based Phoenix Dance Theatre, who appear at Calder High School on Tuesday 27 June with a mixed programme from some of the internationally renowned company’s most popular recent work.

Three of Britain’s best young female folk acts have joined forces as Coven - and they play a one-off show at the Trades Club on Monday 26 June. Huddersfield duo O’Hooley & Tidow join BBC 2 Folk Awards nominees Lady Maisery and activist singer/songwriter Grace Petrie to play songs from their debut EP 'Unholy Choir' - a selection of songs which really sums up the group's no holds barred attitude.

Electronic music fans have a rare chance to see Gazelle Twin’s audiovisual live show Kingdom Come (inspired by J G Ballard’s final novel) followed by legendary Blitz Club DJ Rusty Egan spinning the discs on Saturday 24 June.

Comic-turned-chef Hardeep Singh Kolhi is back at Hebden Bridge Town Hall on Sunday 25 June with an open invitation to join him for a tasty curry and some outrageously funny stories as you scoff. In other good news for comedy fans there are still a few tickets left for Sara Pascoe’s Animal show at the Picture House on Tuesday 27 June, and Comedy Club 4 kids at the Town Hall on Saturday 1 July.

The festival is also a forum for debate with Guardian writers Polly Toynbee and David Walker discussing their new book Dismembered: Why the assault on the state harms us all at the Town Hall on Friday 23 June. They will be welcoming all to interrogate them in their belief that the state, and the services it provides, benefits us all.

Popular science is, well, very popular these days - and Frances M Lynch will be literally singing the praises of pioneering UK female scientists at Wainsgate Chapel on Saturday 24 June. This Edinburgh fringe winning production mixes ancient and modern music to celebrate some of our nation’s greatest thinkers.

Folktronic singer/songwriter Minute Taker and animation artist Ana Stefaniak invite audiences to join them on a journey through the creative process at Wainsgate Chapel on Sunday 25 June, offering a mix of live piano songs and projected films in To Love Somebody Melancholy.

Our event with Guardian cartoonist Steve Bell has already sold out and Will Self is well on the way, so don't delay! You can buy tickets at Hebden Bridge Town Hall from 10am to 4pm (Monday to Friday) or online at

Alongside the ticketed events there are a host of free events for families - visual arts at the Town Hall, Gibson Mill and Machpelah and of course the Open Studios and Gardens to look forward to. You can see the full festival events programme on the website (there's a lot to look at) or download a .pdf of the brochure here (as well as pick a real one up in shops and cafes all over town of course!)
