Bunting Making

We're still bunting mad in Holmfirth!




Hand Made Festival Bunting

Can you sew, knit or crochet? Then we need your help. Our lovely festival bunting is getting a bit tired and sparse and we no longer have enough to decorate the town on Festival weekend 5th – 7th May


We need:

  • Hundreds of colourful fabric or yarn triangles

  • Volunteers to help with sewing them all together (sewing machine required)

  • Volunteers on the afternoon of 5th May to help put up the bunting and on 8th May to help take it down.


Free knitting and crochet patterns are available to download from the festival website, but you can use any pattern you wish.


If you want to sew triangles together, please contact us beforehand as we use strong bunting tape with metal eyelets on the end as it needs to stand up to Pennine weather and unpredictable festival-goers.


For more information:

If you would like to help please email


Send completed triangles to:

  • Or drop them off at The Old Bridge reception in a clearly labelled bag for the attention of HFOF with your name and contact details
