Explore Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire, where all the town’s a stage

Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire

Hebden Bridge Arts Festival celebrates the town’s quirky and distinctive arts scene, with a reputation for delivering big names in a local setting.

Hebden Bridge is a handsome little town in West Yorkshire that’s awash with creativity, from the artists and musicians hard at work in their studios to the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival in June.

This year’s festival starts on June 26th and past years have seen big names like children’s writer Jacqueline Wilson and the poet Carol Ann Duffy on the programme.

Many events take place at Hebden’s community-owned Town Hall, which offers exhibition spaces and full licensed café. There are also plenty of street acts featuring everything from puppeteers and mime artists to brass bands and flash mobs.

Wander the bohemian streets and you will feel the influence of the writers and artists who flocked to the village around the 1970s and 1980s. From artisan shops and inspiring galleries to organic pavement cafés and charming picture houses, the town is justifiably proud of its artistic identity.
