Hebden Bridge Arts Festival is now in it’s 24th year and this year we are planning a tree trail to beat all others!

We want to adorn as many of our beautiful trees as possible. And to do this we need your help…

We’re inviting community groups, schools, businesses and individuals to dress their own tree (in Hebden Town Centre) based on the theme of ‘Water’. Colourful, celebratory and fun the town’s your oyster! Don’t be afraid to get involved, we have trees to suit everyone, big and small just have a go!


If you’d like to dress a tree please submit an expression of interest by Friday 12th May to treetrail@hbaf.co.uk

Dressing must not cause any permanent damage to the tree and needs to withstand a week of Hebden Bridge weather!

In your designs please consider that trees will be in full leaf, dress the trunk, think big!

Dressing will need to be put up anytime during the week commencing 19th June and removed w/c 10th July.

Once you’ve submitted an expression of interest we’ll allocate you a tree and off you go.

Our project leaders Charlotte Deighton and Bee Jasko will be on hand to give advice on design materials etc.  if required drop them an email at treetrail@hbaf.co.uk
