FESTIVAL 2013 – Saturday 22 June to Sunday 30 June
The 2013 Festival runs from Saturday 22nd June until Sunday 30th June and I hope you’ll agree we’ve put together a suitably celebratory and diverse programme !
Headlining: John Cooper Clarke, Tracey Thorn, Daniel Kitson, Simon Armitage, John Bramwell and June Tabor. For families we have Morgan and West’s ‘Time Travelling Magicians’, Libellule Theatre’s ‘Just a bit of paper’, Chol’s ‘Spin a Silly Story’ and a boardgame fest! There’s the chance to bag yourself an instant portrait from the Sketch-O-Matic booth, go and have a nosy round Crow Nest House and see what Islington Mill are planning to bring to town and check out the flooded piano at the Nutclough House Hotel.
There are also festivals within the festival : YHBAF – our new youth fest which gives emerging valley talent the change to programme, platform and perform material for this year’s festival; Uncanny Valley – Magpie Cinema’s first ever animation festival with workshops, screenings and a pop up zine archive and Street Sundaes – our most ambitious ever programme of street performers and outdoor art. So get yourselves into town and have a fantastic time!
We’re also delighted to be sharing an opening date with the fabulous Handmade Parade – parade at 12, finale in the park at 1pm followed by ‘Park Yourself’, our youth fest in Calder Holmes park – all free, all welcome ! So come on down and join the party!
Finally we’re asking for your support to help deliver this fantastic programme. If you’d like to find out more check out Hebden Calling!
Have a good scout round the site (there’s loads going on!) All tickets are available online and the box office will open at the Town Hall for two pop ups on Saturday 25 May and Saturday 1 June from 12 – 3 before opening full time from Saturday 8th June.
We look forward to seeing you at the Festival!
