GET TOGETHER 2023
Update! Join us for another Great Get Together in 2023 on Saturday 24th June at Calder Holmes Park, stay tuned by following us on social media!
Based on the principles of the late Jo Cox MP, that we have more in common than that which divides us, the Great Get Together aims to bring together communities from across the Upper Calder Valley to enjoy a relaxed day in Calder Holmes Park, Hebden Bridge.
We aim for everything to be free so that people are not excluded because they cannot afford it. There are games, sports, activities and craft for children and teenagers, music from our local DJs, free refreshments.
We deliver this event in partnership with our local community and Park Life Cafe. We encourage other local organisations to participate in the event to maximise the outreach in the community.
The date for the Great Get Together is always in June, around midsummers day!
In June 2022 we bought back the very popular Great Hebden Bake Off as part of our Great Get Together celebration.
We had 2 categories - Children (Up to 13 years) & Adults
(14 years and over) and had some amazing entries. The cakes were judged by our local celebrities who then gave out the prizes. All the cakes were sliced and eaten by the audience!
