Discover Cleckheaton’s renegade past and its place in the folk calendar in this year’s extra-special parade

Help our 10ft tall Festival Heron in the search for his feathers that have been scattered all over town.

Celebrating three decades of all things folk, look out for 30 huge feather banners lining the streets and listen out for our Heron telling the folk stories of Cleckheaton recorded over the weekend.

Produced by Edgelands Arts

The parade starts at 11am outside the Fire Station

Cleckheaton Folk Festival takes place in over 12 venues from Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July
