Nationally renowned comedian Patrick Monahan is making his annual visit to the Haworth Festival this month.

This year he’s not the only stand-up star to perform at the festival as it runs from July 24-28.

Scott Bennett will appear at the same venue, the Cobbles and Clay in Main Street.

A Haworth Festival favourite, Patrick Monahan will showcase his 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival stand-up show, entitled Started From The Bottom, Now l’m Here, on Wednesday, July 24 at 7.45pm.

Festival spokesman Sarah Granby said: “There will be smart and funny observations on a new-found, middle-class lifestyle with ski holidays, through the prism of poor, immigrant, living-in-a-caravan roots.”

Patrick will be supported by Cullingworth-based comedian Rob Thomas.

Scott, performing on Sunday, July 28 at 7.30pm, has established himself as one of the fastest rising stars on the UK circuit.

Sarah said: “Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic. He writes for Jason Manford and Sarah Millican and supports Rob Bryden on tour.

“In demand in his own right by many of the big clubs, Scott delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living.”

Another flagship event, on July 28 from noon till 4pm, will be a picnic in the park hosted by the Friends of Haworth Park

Haworth Ukelele Group will perform during the event, which celebrates six years of HUGE, the Haworth Ukelele Group extravaganza. The event is free but people should take along their own picnic.

The Heart Trail Run for Haworth Festival will offer 4.44 miles of “glorious hills, bogs and hearts” on July 25 at 6.30pm, from Ponden Reservoir to Ponden Kirk, Alcomden Stones and Top Withins, an off-road route peppered with tiny clay hearts.

The free event welcomes donations to Macmillan.

Finding The Space, an exhibition of dyed, stitched and felted textiles by Kate Ryan, will be at Pied Piper Pianos and Gallery in Haworth. The opening party is on Friday, July 19 from 7.30-9.30pm, with public viewing daily daily until July 26 from 2-4pm.
