Here’s what one of our headline artists, Clare Hammond, had to say about the 2015 Festival,
“I just wanted to say what a wonderful time I had at the piano festival this weekend. I was so impressed by the energy of the event and the strong community involvement that you’ve managed to build up. It’s astonishing that you’ve achieved this in such a short space of time!”
Dave’s annual Christmas singalong will be on December 20th, tickets available from 1st December at Hebden Bridge Town Hall and online, and the 2016 Festival will be from 22 to 24 April.
