Call out for performers and volunteers!
Do you have a passion for poetry, prose and performance? Then why not perform at our standalone Open Mic on 26 October?
Held in partnership with Cosmia Festival, the Open Mic will have a theme of ‘What Will the Future Bring?’. It’s one of several events taking place in the town on 26 and 27 October, as part of the inaugural Hudds Indie Festival, a weekend to celebrate everything great about our independent business scene. The event is free, all are welcome as performers or audience members and there’s no need to book in advance, just turn up on the night.
We will also be hosting a volunteer drive with HLF organisers and volunteers on hand to answer questions and give advice (volunteers must be over 18 and will be given full training).
When: Saturday 26 October 2019
Time: 6pm Volunteer Drive, 7-8pm Open Mic
Where: Piazza shopping centre (unit tbc)
Welcome to the award-winning Huddersfield Literature Festival
Join us for an annual celebration of books and authors, poetry and performance.
You can expect to see major authors and multi-arts events, comedy and creative writing, performance poetry and a Free Family Day – all taking place over 10 days in March, in venues across Huddersfield, with community, accessibility and inclusivity at its heart.
Meet your favourite authors, discover new talent, hone your own skills or simply come along and enjoy the entertainment on offer.
We welcome performers and audiences from all sectors of society.
We hope to see you at next year’s Festival and thank you for your continued support.
