Hebden Bridge Arts Festival

We are committed to bringing you one of the UK’s best small arts festivals. Our future plans rely on the support of our audiences, artists, national and local government funders, trusts and foundations, local businesses and – most importantly – individual donations  – to bring you the best, year on year.

The festival is a registered charity. By donating to us you can be sure that your donation will go directly to support the creation of our programme and will benefit artists, young people and the broader community. Every donation will make a difference to our festival.

All donors, supporters and sponsors will receive prominent acknowledgement of their support and invitations to special arts festival events during the year.

Here’s how you can support us:


The Nova Collective, supported by the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, is a new initiative to help and promote young artistic talent in our town many of whom are struggling to translate their skills and qualifications into paid employment.

The Collective is open and inclusive and bursting with good ideas and they need £500 to run the Collective for the next six months.

Starting at 10am on Thursday 22nd June, LocalGiving will be doubling one-time donations to local charities pound-for-pound by up to £25! The campaign launches at 10:00 and runs for one day only so get in quick! Plus we can claim tax back on it if you are a taxpayer. Any cash given will go directly to the Nova Collective.

Be early – match funding is limited!  Here’s the link! https://localgiving.org/charity/hebden-bridge-arts-festival/project/novacollective/

Whether you’re local or further afield, 2017 is THE year for businesses to get behind the Arts Festival. From web listings and window dressing to event sponsorship and private donations, we can arrange a bespoke package just for you.

Contact Sarah Ross for more information and to arrange a meeting.


Small donations on a regular basis help support the festival with its work in schools and community groups year round. We plan to organise more events throughout the year and to support more artists. A regular monthly gift would be a powerful way of securing the future of the best small festival around.

Contact Susan Burns for more details.
