A POPULAR Holme Valley arts festival looks set to run for a third year thanks to a council grant.
Holmfirth Arts Festival, has been granted £1,500 by Holme Valley South Area Committee.
The annual festival, which will run from June 4 to June 20, features live music, film, poetry, family workshops, sunset walks and woodland painting sessions.
Famed author, commentator and chef Hardeep Singh Kohli is expected to top the bill.
Last year’s festival, which featured top comic author Gervase Phinn, attracted large audiences.
The event needs to raise £6,650.
So far £1,500 has been secured from the Arts in Neighbourhood Scheme.
Further cash is expected to be generated from art auctions, ticket sales and sponsorship from local businesses.
