Getting Involved

Have you time on your hands and looking for something new to do to support your local community? There are many ways to get involved with Holmfirth Civic Hall, either by becoming a volunteer, a sponsor or friend.


The Civic Hall is a wonderful building, but it takes a lot of looking after and we can use all the help we can get to make it everything we want it to be.  Whether you have the opportunity to make a regular time commitment or just help us on an ad hoc basis, we’d like to hear from you?

Running of the Civic Hall will only be a success with the time, dedication and commitment of a team of volunteers working in a variety of roles. We are pleased that bookings are already increasing and as use of the Hall increases, there will be more and more ways for you to lend a hand.

Volunteers can help with a wide range of activities, for example opening and closing of the Hall; room set up including tables, chairs, staging and equipment; weekend cleaning and caretaking; answering queries from hirers during their event or activity; ushering/stewarding; general maintenance and repairs, painting and decorating; supporting the running of the café and bar – the list is endless.

Whether you have specific skills and experience, or just the enthusiasm to support your local community and our fabulous hall – we’d really like to hear from you.

As a volunteer at Holmfirth Civic Hall we can guarantee you’ll have fun, be part of a great team and you’ll get to enjoy a lively programme of events and activities at first hand, including Holmfirth ArtWeek, the Folk and other Festivals, Brass Band Concerts, and choral and theatre performances. You will certainly meet new people and may even gain some new skills and training opportunities.

The Community Trust is grateful to the many individuals and businesses already supporting the Civic Hall; we are currently working on a number of sponsorship packages so that, as footfall increases, exposure for our supporters will increase too! That’s good for everyone involved.

The benefits of sponsorship will be commensurate with the level of support, but could include features on our supporters’ panel in the Foyer; inclusion on any of our own promotional literature; postings on social media and this website etc. It may also include your own flyers displayed or distributed to our customers at other events and free or reduced-price tickets at some of the events held in the Civic Hall.

If you’re interested in supporting us, please contact for further details.
