Mytholmroyd Arts Festival has been set up by a small group of people with big ambitions. What brings us together is that we live in one of the most beautiful and inspiring parts of the UK, and we have a commitment to great art.

Through this festival we want to encourage local involvement in arts and cultural activities, and to facilitate access to high-quality arts and cultural events in Mytholmroyd and in our surrounding areas. We want to use the arts and creativity to celebrate the strong community spirit of the unique place that we live in.

We invite you to take a stroll through our programme of events.  We hope you will see something you like and we look forward to seeing you there.

Warmest wishes

MAF aims to promote Mytholmroyd as a Village of Culture, falling as it does between Hull and Liverpool, the two great Cities of Culture. We will work in co-operation with the community, local organisations and businesses to support the arts in Mytholmroyd, and to develop Mytholmroyd as a hub of cultural and recreational activities.
