Held on the 30th June 2019, the 12th annual Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade had the theme ‘Once upon a time’. The parade was based on European myth, legends and design, and told the story of a journey through the ancient forests of Europe.
The Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade is an annual celebration of funkiness, the art of the handmade and is a LOT of fun! The magic happens in three weeks of workshops, open to anyone who wants to make costumes, parade art or help create giant puppets. With a crack team of local professional carnival artists, volunteers, guest artists and some amazing street bands, we create a spectacle where up to a thousand people dance their way down the streets of Hebden Bridge, watched by thousands.
