Videos – A Tribute to Hedfest

Open each video full screen to enjoy the full experience.


Hedon Town Council has released three videos to give a flavour of what to expect from the Hedfest – and as a tribute to Hedon festivals current and past. 

So sit back – turn up the volume and enjoy!

The Music Reel showcases the talents of James WoodTom GorringeMike Rogers and Harry Orme. The video was recorded last year in lockdown conditions in Saint Augustine’s Church and is a sample of some of the music to expect this year at Hedfest in the church.

Street Poetry – a celebration of poetry and the spoken word performed to an audience – has always been a feature of the Hedon Festival. In the video, Catherine Scott, David Thompson and Ian Winter give a taste of what to expect at Hedfest.

Henry Priestman and Friends is a tribute to Hedfest by Hedon-born singer and songwriter Henry Priestman. The video was also recorded last year in lockdown conditions and reflects some of the measures that artists and performers had to take in order to meet and entertain virtually. Look out in particular for the guest appearance from Mark Kermode the TV and newspaper and film critic in “Yachting Type(s)”. And we guarantee you will go away from the video with memories and the sounds of “The Ghosts of a Thousand Fishermen (still drink down Hessle Road).”
