We’re proud to confirm that Peter Tatchell will be re-joining us this year for our second festival week.

Another week-long event is currently being organised during the week commencing 7 August 2017. This year’s main event day will take place on Saturday 12 August 2017.

Incorporating a wide variety of events, in and around Hebden Bridge including cinema and cabaret, it will continue to build on the success of our first festival in August  2016.

Further details will be announced shortly.
