This year’s Farsley Festival is set to draw the crowds to Hainsworth Park on Saturday (June 22).

The theme this year is ‘Up in the Air’, so lots of activities are based on height and flight, including a 27ft climbing wall, aerial performers, stiltwalkers, paper airplane launchers, bubbleologists and more.

The music line-up includes folk artist Serious Sam Barrett opening the festival at 12pm, followed by bands including Hailbails, Penny and the Sausages, The Brazen, Farsley Village Singers, Farrago, Counting Coins, Rising Ashes and Phoenix Concert band, among others.

There will be fun inflatables from Breeze, a silent disco, DJ school and dance performances. Community organisations such as Bramley Baths will be having stalls.

Visitors can bring a picnic or choose form one of our lovely food stalls. We will also have the Farsley Festival tea tent, where all profits made on the day will go towards future festivals.

This year’s community project has been created by Bobenna Design. Members of the community have decorated tiles which will form part of a huge installation at the park, we can’t wait to see it all come together!

The free event is run and organised by volunteers and we always need help on the day, so if anyone can help drum up support that would be perfect.

Keep an eye on the festival website and Facebook page for updates.
