There will also be a pumpkin trail giving people the chance to explore Hebden Bridge looking for the official festival pumpkin scenes.

Download a map to your phone or pick one up from one of our volunteers. If you spot all the pumpkin scenes you can enter a prize draw to win a selection of prizes kindly donated by the shops, cafes, bars and businesses of the town.

Hebden Bridge Junior Band will open the festival at 11.10am in the Memorial Gardens.

A number of other events are also taking place across the town throughout the day including live pumpkin carving, Boggart Hunting and performances from a range of musicians.
