Welcome to the 2017 Hebden Bridge Arts Festival!


All the town’s a stage with two days of fantastic free street theatre and a whole weekend of Open Studios and gardens. Back inside we’ve a feast of visual arts, music, comedy, spoken word and performance. We’ve taken water to our hearts this year, so take a stroll along the Rochdale canal, the river Calder or Hebden water and explore studios and follow our trail of decorated trees. Come and join us, there’s something for everyone! For a listing of all events check out our At a Glance guide. You can also use the search box, or browse by date, artist or category.

All tickets can be purchased online or at Hebden Bridge Town Hall Mon – Fri 9 – 5pm. Click here to download a PDF of the programme.
