Todmorden is situated in the stunning Calder Valley, in West Yorkshire. It’s easy to get here on public transport from Manchester, Leeds, Burnley and Bradford.

Todmorden Folk Festival takes place every year over the May Day bank holiday weekend.

The core of our music happens at concerts in various beautiful locations around the town; there are also free events and outdoor entertainments throughout the weekend.
