The Handmade Market will make a Grand return from 10am to 3pm on April 5, with an event at St Michael’s Church in Mytholmroyd.
Organisers Alex and Michelle Rudkin are working with imovearts to create an entertaining start to Welcome to Yorkshire’s 100 day Arts Festival event.
As well as local artists and makers, there will be free face painting and animal balloons for children, commemorative badges, singing and bell ringing.
An event highlight will be the Grand Piano Porte being pulled up Cragg Vale by bicycles. Organisers are meeting in St Michael’s Church carpark at 10am. Bell ringers will send off the piano.
The Old Fire Station Art Gallery is having a two day exhibition to mark its opening.
The Yorkshire Sweet Company will have a sweet trolley in the church hall. Calder High School pupils are producing a free map and shop guide of Mytholmroyd to give out to tourists.
The Yorkshire Boggart Trail will be launched, with organisers hoping Jim Jarrett will perform the Boggart Song.
Elsewhere, the White Ribbon Campaign will have an open day and The Ark Nursery is hosting events.
On the day Michelle will be selling her Stage 2 Tour map posters, which includes Mytholmroyd and Cragg Vale. It will be their first full public viewing.
