Charity information

Grassington Festival of Music and Arts

We aim to bring high quality artists to our isolated rural area in the Yorkshire Dales in a festival of culture during 2 weeks in June. The local community which reaches far up into the dales, have no access to quality arts outside of the fesival as our nearest theatres are a considerable distance away. We price our tickets to be affordable so as many people as possible can have access to the performances, workshops and other events.
We encourage community participation and involve young people as much as we can and organise outreach and education projects every year. For example in 2008 we hope to create a community choir who will rehearse and perform with professional artists.
Our annual event is well run and established but could not take place without the support of generous donors.
