Come together in rural West Yorkshire with traditional English dancing, music and sunshine at the Marsden Cuckoo Festival in April.
The cuckoo is a herald of spring and is celebrated in an ancient festival at Marsden – a village set within the steep-sided Pennine Valley within the National Trust’s 5500 acre Marsden Moor Estate. There’s a colourful procession, a craft fair, a maypole and morris dancing, street entertainment, duck races, storytelling and lots more free events.
You’ll find delicious local produce, quirky independent shops, and a great atmosphere. And, once you’ve had your fill of the happy bustle in the village, take a walk on the Marsden Moor estate to find remains of a Roman road and packhorse trails, the Standedge Canal Tunnel and Visitor Centre, plus other reminders of the area’s industrial past.
