The Airedale Shopping Centre will host a week of entertainment during Keighley Festival.

Groups taking part in the July 7-12 festival will be invited to perform in the centre’s public areas.

Long-term festival participant Deryck Feather, an expert on old-time dancing, has booked one of the days for dancing demonstrations.

Shopping centre manager Steve Seymour offered the use of the Airedale centre when he attended this month’s (April) meeting of the Keighley Festival committee.

The festival, which is funded by Bradford Council, will again offer a week of activities mostly organised by Keighley community groups.

Groups interested in performing in the centre should contact festival chairman Malcolm Hanson by e-mailing
