Be inspired at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival

Huddersfield , West Yorkshire

Amazing performances at the UK’s largest international festival of new and experimental music.

With 50 events over 10 days in November, this popular University town comes alive with the sounds of new and experimental music.  Enjoy concerts, music, theatre, dance, multi-media and films, plus talks with some of the worlds most diistinguished performers. There are creative workshops to inspire musicians of all ages and abilities too.  

Stay at the award winning Huddersfield Central Lodge, run by the local Marsden family who are keen to make your stay as welcoming as possible.  Follow short trails around the town to find small independent shops, grand listed buildings, real ale pubs, art, local heritage, and maybe a ghost or two!
