Grassington Festival is a charity that aims to give back to the community in spades.
Working in schools, care homes and providing free events for all the family, Grassington Festival aims to give back to the community in spades.
We provide free entertainment in the Square every weekend during the festival to make sure there is something for everyone from the very young to the very old. We join with our local farmers market to provide a Yorkshire twist including demonstrations and tastings of all that is wonderful about healthy eating in Yorkshire.
Our classical concert for children featuring a lithophone quarried from local Limestone was partly funded through crowdfunding. We worked together with Purple Patch, Skipton Building Society Camarata, Quarry Arts And Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority to introduce families to classical music and experience a range of instruments and genres from Leopold Mozart’s Toy Symphony to Peter and The Wolf narrated by actress Kathryn Pogson.
