Anyone interested on becoming a Hebden Bridge Board Arts Festival board member or a volunteer can find out more at their annual open meeting tonight, Thursday, March 27.

The festival team will be on hand in the Town Hall from 7pm to talk to local people who might be interested in joining the board as treasurer, fundraiser or company secretary.

As always this year’s festival which kicks off Friday, June 27, can only happen thanks to a small army of volunteers who give their time and this event is a chance for the community to celebrate their achievements.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the array of volunteer opportunities for the week long festival can talk to the board’s volunteer coordinators on the night, or apply online at

Festival Chair Sara Robinson said: “We have a very strong board but we really need to fill these key roles as we plan and then deliver the festival.

“But the open meeting is most of all a chance for us to say thanks to all our volunteers as without their support we simply couldn’t deliver the ambitious programme we have planned for 2014.”
