The Yorkshire Yurt Festival was a resounding success thanks to all those who participated. This hub of creativity involved artists, musicians, poets, story tellers and writers who came together within the Yurt for an amazing celebration of the arts inspired by and coinciding with Le Tour for the week of 1st – 6th July 2014. Watch the video to see a record of this fantastic event.

The Yorkshire Yurt Festival and The Grand Depart, Holme Village 1st – 6th July 2014
The festival is now upon us. The Yurt will be erected on the 30th June complete with Sue’s five hand-felted 5 x 1m hangings . Sue ran residencies in ten schools in the run up to the festival. The work produced will also be exhibited in and around the Yurt. The international felt makers (IFA) have produced a variety of magnificent felt birds which will also be hung in the Yurt. The Grand Depart of the Tour de France will pass through Holme Village where the yurt is located on Sunday 6th July. A barbecue and bar will be open all day. Here is the programme of events in the Yurt from Tuesday 1st July until Saturday 5th July 2014.
We hope you can join us! Sue will be there afternoon/evenings to talk about the project.
