History of Brighouse Arts Festival

Brighouse Arts Festival started in 2012 and since then has grown to be a leading cultural event and festival in Calderdale’s calendar.

We have had Brian Blessed, Lesley Garrett, Kiki Dee & Carmelo Luggeri, Roger Davies, Red Ladder Theatre, Go Go Penguin, Kinks Musical, and over 300 acts and events over our entire history.

As well as our main festival, we have also produced many one off events and projects, our biggest to date being the National Lottery Heritage Fund supported ‘My Generation: Brighouse Baby Boomers’ social history and arts project. In 2019 we also launched the Field Lane Mini-Fest.

Book online through TicketSource or in store at Ryecorn Wholefoods or Harrison Lord Gallery.

Even though we may have changed our branding over the years we have continued to bring amazing arts and entertainment to Brighouse since 2012. Check out our branding changes below:
