Cleckheaton Folk Festival 2020 aims to provide a weekend of free family orientated entertainment for local people of all ages, with an opportunity to experience and learn new forms of music and dance, both as audience and as participants. As a result, people are attracted to the town to the benefit of local traders both on the weekend and subsequently. Over the years we have worked alongside local organisations and schools to enhance the community involvement and to bring new opportunties for engagement. Local churches, schools, dance schools, businesses and voluntary organisations have all been involved in recent years providing contributions to the parade and to dance presentations. Childrens entertainment in the form of Bouncy Castles, Punch & Judy, Circus Skills with Crafty Devils and Face Painters have all added to the weekends attraction.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Street Theatre, Parade and Children's Entertainment make up the public face of Cleckheaton Folk Festival which brings thousands into the town and brings the town centre alive with music dance and theatre. The event brings visitors from far and wide and gives local organisations a chance to be involved in one of the biggest events in the Spen Valley. The highlight of the summer season in Cleckheaton appealing to people of all ages.
Steps to get it done:
First Weekend in July 3rd, 4th & 5th July 2020
