A summer of fundraising events to raise money towards the repairs needed to St Thomas Church window
The Thurstonland Music Event Team is pleased to present the Spirefest Picnic in the Park and Spirefest Picturedrome, Holmfirth, both raising funds for the east window in St Thomas' Church which as you may know is in urgent need of repair.

Come along and bring a picnic or pre-book an Afternoon Tea (limited numbers) via Janet Wiltshire. We have 3 local acoustic acts – Boo Sutcliffe, Altitude and LXUR€N who are giving their time free gratis to support the event.
We will be selling raffle tickets with a selection of great prizes including a first prize of £100 and also holding a bucket collection on the day - so please bring all your loose change to support this worthy cause.
NB -The raffle will be drawn on Monday 30th August
On Sunday August 29th, we then have six amazing local acts performing live at the Picturedrome from 3pm (doors open 2.30pm).
