11:00am Wednesday 20th February 2013 in News
The festival’s annual schools art exhibition, this year the Kabinet of Keighley Kuriosities, will be hosted by Cliffe Castle Museum.
Meanwhile the National Trust hall will be the setting for a day of spooky activities for children.
Another major new event will be a medieval day organised by Cliffe Castle Park Conservation Group.
Keighley Festival spokes-man Malcolm Hanson said he was over the moon that the two visitor attractions were getting involved.
He said: “It’s a big step forward for us. Hopefully Cliffe Castle and East Riddlesden Hall will be in it every year from now on.”
The festival will run from July 5 to 13 and involves more than 50 events including a film festival, tea dance, knitting, curry night, Asian dancing and band concerts.
