A spectacular celebration of the art of the handmade, including 3 weeks of open workshops for anyone who wants to make costumes, portable art or giant puppets with a crack team of local carnival artists.

The Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade is an annual celebration of funkiness, the art of the handmade and is a ton of fun! The magic happens in three weeks of workshops, open to anyone who wants to make costumes, carryable art, or create giant puppets. We also run workshops where anyone can learn Samba drumming, Samba dance, and stiltwalking. With have a crack team of local professional carnival artists, volunteers, guest artists and some killer street bands, we create a space for people to explore their creativity, culminating in the opportunity for up to 1000 people to dance down the streets of Hebden Bridge, watched by thousands. The parade takes about an hour to wind through our beautiful town, ending up in Calder Holmes Park, where there is a small but lovely finale, music, and food. Seriously, you don’t want to miss this.
