About

Holmfirth Arts Festival: Th'Owd Towser Show 11th - 26th June 2011 Daisy Lane, Holmfirth, UK This group exhibition brings a selection of contemporary artists to the Grade 1 listed heritage site, once used as the village church lock up, mortuary, ambulance station and fire station. Perhaps the oldest building in Holmfirth dating from circa 1597, Th'Owd Towser (The House of Correction) houses some unexpected things reminiscent of the building's former uses. Artists have been selected from an international open call to show new work in response to this unique building, with the lower floor showing an artists' film programme throughout the festival.

Taking place annually in the picturesque town of Holmfirth and throughout the Holme Valley, the festival's programme embraces theatre, visual art, literature, and music. Holmfirth Arts Festival celebrates the landscapes and communities of the Holme Valley and Yorkshire and fosters the distinct cultural traditions which thrive here, such as brass bands and choral singing. Making new work is fundamental to the festival; each year's programme is built around a series of new works across all art forms, including works by young and emerging artists and companies, local artists, and nationally or internationally known practitioners. http://www. holmfirthartsfestival.co.uk | info@holmfirthartsfestival.co. uk
