Challenges in May 2024 will include the commencement of alterations to Hollowgate and the Market Hall demolition, which will impede on dance spots and the Procession.

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 more than 40 years. In fact 2024 will be the 46th! We pride ourselves on producing a community based festival involving schools, local talent, most businesses in the town and, of course, a small band of volunteers. Our income is tiny compared to most festivals on the circuit and comes mainly from sponsorship, grants, public collections and ticket sales.
Our Festival CD is still available -  for only £3.
50% of the purchase price goes to food banks in the Holme Valley.
