We’re excited to announce that this year the festival will run from Friday 28th August until Sunday 6th September. Proceedings will get off to a start with Festival Day on Friday 28th and for which we are delighted to welcome back Dr Laura James as compere. Planning is now well underway and we hope to be confirming the first Festival Day speakers very soon!
We would also like to take this opportunity to issue a call for events to join us and be hosted as part of the festival. If you or a group you are involved with would like to host a day, or even just a morning or afternoon of talks, workshops or perhaps a roundtable discussion, please do get in touch.
There are of course sponsorship opportunities and without the support of sponsors the festival simply would not be possible. Once again, to find out more, drop us a line. And a big thanks to the first sponsor of Wuthering Bytes 2020, our friends at Fourth Day PR!
On a somewhat less happy note, you may have seen in the news that Hebden Bridge and surrounding areas were recently subjected to severe flooding courtesy of Storm Ciara. Should you wish to contribute to recovery efforts, the Community Foundation for Calderdale has set up a flood appeal. In addition to which, a great way of providing support to local businesses is to visit the towns affected, where there is no shortage of excellent cafes, shops and bars etc.
