Artfest Holmfirth

Over two days in November, Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th 2019 at the Holmfirth Civic Hall we will be showcasing the work of the very best of British arts and crafts from a hand picked selection of makers.

The venue, Holmfirth Civic Hall is an impressive building constructed in 1842 lying in the heart of the beautiful Last of the Summer Wine countryside and is now in the care of the Holmfirth Civic Hall Community Trust. The Trusts vision is to make Holmfirth Civic Hall an inclusive, cohesive and sustainable community asset- run in the community, by the community for the community. Artfest Holmfirth will be accommodated in the two main halls, the Large Hall and the Lesser Hall.
