Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade 2016Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade 2016Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade 2016 On a rare weekend off work, I had the chance to take my kids along to the Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade yesterday. Of course I couldn't help taking along my faithful Canon 5d mkIII camera and the 24-70mm lens. We caught the parade just in time to see it arrive at Calder Holmes Park, I wish we could have stayed all day...

I've been to this festival a few times before, every year this celebration of art, fun and culture, never ceases to amaze me, it's grown bigger and better year-on-year. This year alone, there were around 1000 participants...

Cobbled together over just a few weeks of workshops, the brainchild of puppeteer Andrew Kim, is one of the greatest gifts to the art-world in recent times...

 The talented artists that come together to help create this event, will have an everlasting effect on the art abilities of all those taking part, let-alone the thousands that flock to see the parade.

From the beating of drums to the colour, the fun and laughter, this parade defies all worries of floods and political upheavals.

It's about the people and art, it's in my book, probably the best festival of it's type in the world! Thank you all at the Handmade Parade, the sun will always shine on Hebden Bridge!
