Festival Update: Food, Glorious Food (and drink!)

There’s much more to Heptonstall Festival than just the music, magic and even children’s parade.. You’re going to be treated to some of the finest, funkiest food and drink available in the local area, and much of it produced locally too!

We’re going to highlight a few of them starting with:

Luddenden Valley Wines

Luddenden Valley wines is a fruit and country wines and liqueurs producer in Luddenden. They grow as much of thier own produce as possible, or source from local orchards, fields and hedgerows. They’ve been featured on the BBC’s Countryfile and praised very highly. They’ll be at the festival selling bottles of their wonderful produce.

Artist Update: Hebden Bridge Hill Millies

It wouldn’t be the festival without this bunch – so we’re really pleased that they’ll be dancing for us again this year.

The Hebden Bridge Hill Millies are a Women’s Morris Dancing side based in Hebden Bridge, dancing in the Cotswold tradition infused with their own special magic. Accompanied by 4 fantastic fiddlers. They can sometimes be seen in Nora Batty disguise!

Artist Upate: Le Neon Noir

Inspired by the retro-futurism of 1980’s sci-fi, the dark, dystopian worlds of Blade Runner, Max Headroom, Tron and William Gibson’s novel Neuromancer, credited by many as the origin of the cyberpunk genre.

In 2014 work began on Le Néon Noir’s debut EP, featuring HARUKO’s first appearance as a credited performer, as well as guitarist J. W. Greenwood, drummer Carl Banks and, for live programming and synthesisers, Jim Atkinson.

This year they join us for the Heptonstall Festival..
