Street Entertainment:

Festival Parade starts at 11.00 from Cleckheaton Fire Station

All paraders welcome!!

In 2017, Thieving Magpie won the Wickham Trophy yet again! They will be with us this year, but have said they will not take part in the dance off this time. We think this is extremely good of them and look forward to seeing them dance as good as ever.

Other dance sides confirmed to date are:

Jockey Morris, Spen Valley Longsword, Persephone, Hadrian Clog, Rhubarb Tarts, Waters Green and Britannia Coconut Dancers.

Bollin Morris will also be joining us for the Sunday.


Creative Scene will be enhancing the street entertainment with a diverse mix of dance and performances on the Savoy Site and in the Pedestrian Precinct on the Saturday.

Sunday will see the usual Family Fun Day with free entertainment for the children and grown ups can enjoy watching from their deck chairs!

All we need now is to be blessed once again with good weather!!
