Brighouse Arts Festival 2021

October 2021


We’re sure everyone is aware of the unusual and difficult times coronavirus has placed us in. As organisers of the Brighouse Arts Festival our mains priorities are the safety of our audiences, volunteers and artists. We are also aware of the safety requirements for our partner churches, libraries and community halls, and the social sanctions in place throughout Calderdale.

We can assure you that it is our intention to run the Festival just as soon as it is safe to do so. We are therefore looking forward to October 2021! We just need to settle on dates, liaise with artists, and see how things go.

Please keep an eye on the website and social media for updates. All tickets will be valid for the postponed 2020 events.

For now, we hope you remain safe, and look forward to when we can re-launch our programme later this year.

My Generation – Brighouse Baby Boomers

Arts for Brighouse, with support from a National Lottery grant, created an exciting heritage project, ‘My Generation, Brighouse and Rastrick Baby Boomers – Images, Stories, Objects’. Our Heritage Lottery Funded project focused on shared memories, images and objects from baby boomers who live in Brighouse and Rastrick.
