Haworth Arts Festival is a brilliant local event bringing musical and artistic revelry to the village over a fantastic 12 days. The festival takes place in various locations from the famous Bronte Parsonage Museum to our café and pottery painting studio. It’s a great opportunity for locals and visitors to get together and share their love for music and art.
This year we are bursting with excitement to bring back our infamous open mic night along with a host of other free events at Cobbles & Clay – we hope you’ll join us!
Open mic night (18th June, 7.30pm): We open Haworth Arts Festival 2015 with the return of our popular open mic night! Facilitated by Andy Wood, it’s sure to be a fun night of music, song, comedy, poetry, interpretive dance… whatever floats your accordion!
Ikkle Dragons drop-in craft session (10am-12pm, 20th June): The hosts of our new weekly children’s craft classes (Thursday 3.45-5.15pm), Ikkle Dragon Crafts, are holding a drop-in session for creative kids to try out. They will be making fabric mosaics.
Bronte readings (6pm, 26th June): Caroline Lamb, who is playing Emily Bronte in a brand new play coming this November, will be joining us in the cafe to deliver performed readings of poetry and prose by the most famous family in the history of English Literature to promote the production and raise the funds to stage it.
