Support your local festival.
We hope you love what we do and enjoy the festival and culture it brings.
As an independent festival, we rely on the generosity of donations to bring diverse events to put Huddersfield on the cultural map.
Why not donate monthly, even a small amount helps us bring fantastic free and subsidised events to the town.
Support us with Ko-Fi
You can now support us for the price it would cost for a cup of coffee.
Ko-fi is our new way to ask you for support. Coffee’s just a metaphor (You don’t have to buy actual coffee!).
Donate as a one off or a regular monthly payment.Top up our Coffee Cup
