HOLMFIRTH is recovering from a weekend of non-stop music and dancing following this year's Festival Of Folk.
Folk fans flocked to the town from Friday to Sunday to enjoy a vast programme of entertainment.
It was the second year the event has been held under the banner Holmfirth Festival Of Folk. Secretary Cath Ingham said it had been a great success.
"It has gone very well this year," she said. "Numbers have been perhaps a little down on last year because of the weather, but generally it's just been superb."
She said one of the highlights of the festival had been the Schools Concert in Holmfirth Civic Hall, which took place on Saturday and featured children from primary and secondary schools in Holmfirth.
The festival opened on Friday night with music in venues around the town, including Number 11, the Old Bridge Hotel, The White Hart, Les Caveaux, The Postcard, Herveys and Y Bar.
But the festival started proper on Saturday, with one of the main features being a grand parade of musicians and Morris dancers making their way through Victoria Park.
Other highlights included a Saturday night performance at Holmfirth Civic Hall by Chumbawumba who were fresh from a year on the road with a new line-up and a new style of unaccompanied vocals and harmony singing.
Sheffield-based singer, songwriter, guitarist and fiddle player James Raynard was the support act along with Holmfirth duo James Meadow and Steve Lacey.
Saturday saw music taking place at 12 venues around the village, including the John Richards Band at CragRats and ceilidhs led by Red Parrots and the Good Egg Band.
Sunday brought performances from Honley blues singer Emily Druce and her performing partner Steve Jones at Carniceria and folk stars Brian Peters and Gordon Tyrrall.
But the festival was not just for the professionals.
Local peformers got to show off their talents at open mike sessions or by taking part in dance and music workshops.
With so much music, it was only natural there would be dancing. Thirty Morris dancing groups performed, including Slubbing Billys, the Britannia Coconut Dancers, Alford Morris, Boggarts Breakfast and Flagcrackers of Craven.
