About this cause
Holmfirth Art & Music produces Holmfirth Arts Festival, celebrating the landscape, community and creativity of Holmfirth and the Holme Valley, a gateway to the Peak District National Park. Our programme of free outdoor activities enables rurally isolated people, those in poverty or with poor mental or physical health, to feel better by connecting them with others and their surrounding environment.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The project will enable people - regardless of age, disability, social or economic disadvantage - to come together in the outdoors by enjoying safe, healthy activity. They will experience their place within the town and landscape differently, feel proud of where they live, gain a sense of belonging and understand their responsibility for the environment by reducing their impact upon it.
