Huddersfield Festivals and Art Galleries

Every year Huddersfield hosts a superb calendar of events and festivals, one of which is a contemporary music festival in November offering an eclectic range of musical events and concerts. Huddersfield is renowned for its choral society and has a rich choral history. The famous Yorkshire Queen of song Susan Sunderland who has an annual singing contest named after her came from Huddersfield!

A choice of venues play host to Huddersfield Festivals including the Huddersfield Concert Hall, St Paul's Concert Hall and the Lawrence Batley Theatre, once the largest Methodist Church in the world frequented by John Wesley. Checkout the excellent programme for Huddersfield's annual acclaimed Literature Festival held every March.

Other festival highlights annually in Huddersfield include the town's Food and Drink Festival in August, the Huddersfield Carnival in July, the Huddersfield Chinese New Year celebrations and the ever growing Huddersfield St Patrick's Day Parade - that's just to name a few.

Two art galleries in the town centre - The Huddersfield Art Gallery and the Batley Art Gallery, both with free entry and rotating art exhibitions showcase the best of local artists. New arts spaces constantly appear in Huddersfield, many of which are situated in converted mills like the fantastic Bates Mill. Innovative arts spaces don't come better than The North Light Gallery with Fairtrade cafe and great party/ wedding and conference space onsite. The North Light is a best Huddersfield art gallery for children, featuring regular kids workshops and family activities.

Huddersfield Art Gallery has an excellent collection of British 20th century art including work by Francis Bacon, Lowry and Henry Moore, plus a craft gallery displaying work by local artists.
