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 about 30 years. We pride ourselves on producing a community based festival involving schools, local talent, most businesses in the town and, of course, a small army of volunteers. Our income is tiny compared to most festivals on the circuit and comes mainly from sponsorship, grants, public collections and ticket sales.
