Simon Amstell, Kevin Rowland, George Monibot, Martin Parr, John Shuttleworth and Tiger Lillies are just some of the artists helping Heben Bridge Arts Festival celebrate its 21st birthday.

As well as big name acts the festival, which kicks off on Friday, June 27, offers special community events, including two days of free street entertainment from world class artists, and events tied into Le Tour’s Yorkshire Festival.

A special event at Hebden Bridge Town Hall last Sunday saw the official launch of the festival programme.

Festival director Helen Meller said: “21 is a significant anniversary, which we would never have made without the support of our community, so we wanted to offer a programme that not only had some special one off events, but reflected the strengths of our town.”
