One thought on “Heptonstall Festival

  1. This years line up includes: Music from Patsy Matheson, John Bramwell and Spirit of John amongst others, there will also be magic from Alexander Wells and storytelling from Ursula Holden Gill alongside a play by local children “Oliver!”.
    There will be a number of crafts in the church ruin to view and have a go at. We will have stalls from the Towngate Tearoom, Heptonstall, NOT A FULL SHILLING RECYCLED JEWELLERY and Amanda Cox as well as various local community groups. As usual beer on the square is provided by Little Valley Brewery but both the Cross Inn Heptonstall Hebdebbridge and heptonstall white lion will offer you a warm welcome too. As with last year, we will be kicking off the event at 11am with a fell race which will be started by “Ciffy” the steam tractor blowing his whistle!
    The church will be offering hourly tower tours and there may even be a return of the human fruit machine!
    The event is being held on 7th July from 11am on Weavers Square. We hope that we have a really good do this year and aim to make it our best one yet as this will be the last time Pete and I organise the event.

    We still have some space for stalls so if you are interesting in showcasing your wares or talents or would like to involve people in your craft or raise awareness of your community group then please do get in touch.
