Calder Valley Voices hosted the National Street Choirs Festival 2014 at Hebden Bridge.

Hebden Bridge was alive with the sound of music as the National Street Choirs Festival hit the town.

The weekend, hosted by Calder Valley Voices, saw 40 community choirs descend on the town and concerts, workshops and a 1,000 strong choir performance meant the event hit a pitch perfect note.

Kate Wileman, a member of the festival organising committee, said that the response had been fantastic.

“The welcome the choirs got were phenomenal and many said that it had been the best festival they had been to,” Kate said.

“They loved the venue, the community and the appreciation they got in Hebden Bridge.”

She added that festival organisers aimed to bring people into the heart of the town to both enjoy the entertainment and to take advantage of what Hebden Bridge has to offer.

Kate said: “It really lived up to expectations and every single second of planning was worth it in the end.”

The money raised from the weekend will be donated to both local and national charities including The Gorilla Organization, CROWS, Live Well, Todmorden Food Drop-in and the NSPCC
