Established in 1993
Hebden Bridge Arts Festival is a charity based in West Yorkshire.
We aim to support as many local artists as we can and celebrate creativity in the Calder Valley.
We produce an annual Summer Festival, and offer a programme of lively monthly talks at Cafe Culture.
We nurture young talent throughout the year in collaboration with The Nova Collective.
Our 2019 festival theme is
MAPS - Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss
Maps (AKA James Chapman) presents a very special performance of his new album ‘Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss.’ Signed to the legendary Mute Records, Chapman is a Mercury-nominated composer and producer who has toured extensively in the UK, Europe and North America.
