Friends & Supporters

Holmfirth Festival of Folk is a community run festival which relies on the generous support of local groups, businesses and individuals. The festival aims to keep as many events as possible free and open to all, this is only made possible by the grants we receive, the contributions from local businesses and the donations in bucket shakes on the weekend from visitors.
