It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Jan Pickles on Monday 27th August, one of the founders and stalwarts of our lovely Festival.

Jan was being treated for Leukaemia and suffered a stroke which, unfortunately, has overtaken her.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Geoff at this most moving time.

The funeral will take place at Dewsbury Crematorium, Heckmondwike Road, Dewsbury WF13 3PL at 10.30 on Friday 7th September and afterwards at the Wickham Arms, Cleckheaton. Jan expressed a wish for bright clothing and for donations to charity as follows
