Spring is well on its way, and with it comes Calderdale Council’s annual Events and Festivals guide, packed full of things to do between April and September.

The guide is crammed with over 30 entries of indoor and outdoor events taking place right across Calderdale.

Spring has arrived with a flurry of exciting events, such as the Hebden Bridge Piano Festival, St George’s Fun Day at Bankfield Museum, Brighouse Food and Craft Market and the return of the Hebden Bridge Burlesque Festival.

While Summer will be bursting with events from agricultural shows to arts festivals and carnivals to charity galas.

There’s even an Alternative Christmas in Hebden Bridge in June, six months on from the flooding which hit the area on Boxing Day 2015.

Cabinet member for communities, Coun Steve Sweeney, said: “There are lots of reasons to visit Calderdale throughout the year, but the wonderful Events and Festivals guide gives you snapshot of the great events taking place throughout spring and summer - from the traditional to the unusual.”
