This year’s spectacle will have a truly international feel as the local parade team of world-class artists, musicians and performers are joined by Russian artists from Cardboardia – a ficticious young country without territory, but with new strong traditions, in a unique artist residency co-commissioned by the Yorkshire Festival.
On June 26th, at the Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade, Cardboardia will celebrate the opening of its first Embassy on English soil. This residency will be the first stage of a two year project throughout the North of England which will result in creating a Cardboard Town in England.
The Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade will start at 12 noon with a mini-festival in Calder Holmes Park from 1pm - 4pm. In the lead up to the parade, open costume workshops will run from 4th - 23rd June 2016.
Cardboardia will also be coming to Kirklees, watch out for further news.
