Calderdale Events & Festivals Guide 2017
The colourful guide is crammed with over 30 entries of indoor and outdoor events taking place across Calderdale between April and September.
There’s a mix of old and new events, with annual attractions such as the Todmorden Folk Festival, Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade, Brighouse 1940s weekend and the Halifax Agricultural Show returning; and new additions like Armed Forces Day celebrations and the Elland Vintage Festival making a welcome appearance.
This year’s guide also sees the return of the Tour de Yorkshire to Calderdale, as the borough welcomes the third stage of the 2017 race on Sunday 30 April. This time the race travels through Halifax and Brighouse on a course of challenging terrain.
Along with listings, the Events and Festivals guide features a handy map, showing the location of events with local transport links.
