Hebden Bridge wins Blues Festival of the Year for record third and final time.

We are delighted to say that Hebden Bridge Blues Festival has won the Festival of the Year title at the 2014 British Blues Awards.

The official presentation was this afternoon in Colne at their Blues Festival.

Whether you were a musician, a caterer, a full-wristband Weekend Warrior, someone who caught a band in a Juke Joint, someone who cleaned the toilets, or someone who just cheered us on from the internet, thank you for this honour.

A change to the Hebden Bridge Blues Festival website

Now that the gigs are over, this website will concentrate on becoming a resource for information about those people whose music, knowledge, photography, hospitality, videos and all the rest, were the ingredients of the Hebden Bridge Blues Festival.

These groups and individuals supported us and we will continue to support them, long into the future.

You will notice changes to the site fairly quickly, but as with all of these projects, the work will always be ongoing.

Thank YOU for doing your part too.
