Kirklees is a district of world class music that stands proud on its rich and diverse musical heritage. Music is the beat of our heart. It is the sound of our communities and it is the pulse of our towns and villages.

As part of the Yorkshire region’s plans for a Year of Culture in 2023, Kirklees has designated it as a Year of Music for the district, shining a light on the richness and diversity of music today, inclusive of all genres, all communities and in all forms.

Kirklees,a place where …............

- Music is celebrated through a year-round programme of festivals, concerts, gigs and events
