BOOK NOW to avoid disappointment.

The 2018 programme will be an exciting selection of the best events ever to take place in Brighouse.

In 2017 we programmed events which attracted over 3,500 active audience members and an online outreach to 132,000 people. The festival brings Art, Theatre, Literature and Music and an array of artistic activities together that are easily accessible to the general public.

The Brighouse Festival sees Brighouse playing host to some high profile and successful performers. The Festival is being hosted at a number of venues across Brighouse including The Central Methodist Church, The Smith Art Gallery and Library, The Salvation Army Citadel and St. Martin’s Parish Church in addition to which a number of small and large businesses are also offering events. Further events and activities will be announced over the coming months and a programme of activity will be available in the near future which will include details of how to obtain tickets for the modestly priced events. However, the good news is though that some of the events will be free to attend.

Our aim is to have a larger impact on the arts and community. After our successful arts festival last year, we are looking to develop on community and professional works presented at the festival. With new arts activities and high quality artistic events throughout our arts festival.

Our program of events includes theatre, music, literature, dance, photography and crafts. We will look for innovative ways of engaging with the public to introduce local people to great art; which will inspire and create activities which bring people together.
