Holmfirth History 2     Holmfirth History 1     Holmfirth History 3

Holmfirth is a Pennine town not far from Huddersfield. Although it is now renowned worldwide as the home of the BBC's long-running TV series The Last of the Summer Wine, it also has a great deal history and heritage.

The area boasts picturesque and often dramatic hillside and moor views. For walkers young and old, there is the Pennine Way which passes right through Holmfirth and to the West. 

Restored to its 1913 former glory, the Picturedrome sits just next door to us and has hosted some of the biggest names in music and live entertainment, including Sophie Ellis-Bexter, The South & Rival Sons. Find about about their latest events by clicking here.

An unmissable date in the Holmfirth calendar is the Holmfirth Festival of Folk which has been an annual event in May since 1978 and continues to grow and strengthen every year.
