Kicking off at 12pm, the free outdoor festival, organised by Youth Routes, will see performances from acoustic artists and rock, punk and indie bands.

Activities will range from juggling to face-painting, to a doodle wall aswell as jewellery and bag stalls.

Sowerby Bridge Mongolian restaurant, Temujin, will be catering, whilst local dance group Fusion Impact will be staging a workshop.

The fun filled festival will be documented by ExPRESSion, Calderdale’s young media group, which will be tweeting live on the day, while their sister group, Digital Calderdale, will be filming the festival.
