Holmfirth Festival of Folk
Holmfirth Festival of Folk grew from the ashes of Holmfirth Folk Festival in 2005 and has become an excellent community based festival which draws in a large local audience in addition to the usual 'folkies' who travel around the country visiting the many folk festivals that take place throughout the year. The events take place in the local pubs and on the streets. The vast majority of the events are free although audiences are encouraged to contribute to the collection buckets! The only paid events are the concerts in the Old Bridge function room and the Ceilidh. Tickets were introduced mainly as a means of controlling numbers. Because of the nature of the venues they don't go for 'big names' but be assured that you will get quality.
