GUEST,Nikki Holmfirth Folk Festival (62* d) No Holmfirth Folk Festival 26 Nov 05


THERE WILL BE NO HOLMFIRTH FESTIVAL IN 2006.

For the first time in its 27 year history the Folk Festival in Holmfirth will take a year off in 2006. The directors of the festival have reluctantly taken this decision whilst they consider the best way forward. A shortage of overnight camping space and sufficient B & B accommodation means that the festival organisers may consider a move out of the town if they are to continue to provide a high quality event for the local community and visitors alike.

Festival director James McKinlay says the decision to cancel next year's festival was not taken lightly. In recent years there has been a big growth in community involvement with school workshops and a free children's festival weekend.

The organisers are already involved in talks with Holmfirth businesses and Kirklees Council to discuss the long term future of the festival.
