HEDFEST takes place from 6pm Friday evening 14th August until midnight on Saturday 15th August 2015. It will be a festival of live music, art, entertainment, comedy and literature.

With four performance areas – catering for all tastes from classical to pop – the music element alone is likely to attract big crowds of festival goers from across Hull and East Yorkshire. The exciting line-up of bands, artists and performers will be published soon!.

In addition the festival will include a major Carnival Procession on Saturday which will be launched by the Hedon Mayor at 2:30pm from Ivy Lane/Market Hill, which promises to bring a touch of Rio de Janeiro atmosphere to spice up ancient Hedon. A ‘scrap’ Fashion Show will bring a novel contingent as students and designers display their clothes and fashion accessories created out of everyday waste materials. There is still opportunity for local marching bands, majorettes, samba dancers and other such troupes to get involved.

With food, crafts, charity and business stalls, with street theatre and side shows – HedFest will have something for everyone in the family. A great weekend is on offer – get the dates in your diary now!

HedFest welcomes volunteers – our HedFesters! If you can help us deliver, marshal and steward the event we want to hear from you. See Volunteers.

Can you help sponsor HedFest? We have £10,000 from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council High Street Fund to kickstart the event, and the Federation of Small Businesses are supporting the Festival with £3,000, but to put on a bigger and better event that can run in future years too, requires even more support. Can you sponsor one of our marquees, or one of our events or activities? If so we want to hear from you! Sponsors will get a mention in our programme, brochures and publicity plus there may be other rewards and free tickets!

Can you help?
