The 2016 Hebden Bridge Piano Festival takes place in the beautiful Yorkshire town’s fully accessible Town Hall over the weekend of the 22nd to 24th April. The packed programme has a truly international feel with pianists from China, Russia, Poland, India and Greece in the stellar line-up alongside those from the UK.

Headline artists include the 2015 Leeds International Piano Competition winner Anna Tsybuleva (tickets for this concert sold out within 10 days of going on sale!), internationally acclaimed Sheffield-based pianist Benjamin Frith and the amazing jazz pianist Jason Rebello.

Other stars of the Festival include legendary artist Alicja Fiderkiewicz who is giving an all-Polish recital, pianist, raconteur and star of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Will Pickvance, Dudley International Piano Competition 2014 winner Mishka Rushdie Momen, the highly talented Athens-based pianist Sofia Matsagou making her UK debut at the festival and the prodigiously talented 19 year old virtuoso Yuanfan Yang who will be performing his own compositions as part of a highly impressive programme.

As well as all this, the Festival programme also includes inexpensive concerts for children and families, free events featuring non-classical piano music and recitals by young students of Chetham’s Music School in Manchester – one of whom is only 8 years old!
