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. The Festival committee has been responsible for the last nine years and the festival has gone from strength to strength. They pride themselves on producing a community based festival involving schools, local talent, most businesses in the town and, of course, a small army of volunteers. The outcome is fairly miniscule compared to most of the other festivals on the circuit and it is derived mainly from grants, sponsorships, public collections and to a far lesser degree, ticket sales.
It is, however a very fun event, held in a pretty little town.
A line-up has yet to be decided upon and announced.
