If you are looking for somewhere to shelter from the monsoon like conditions our summer is supplying, the Huddersfield area has two beer festivals this weekend. At Marsh, the Liberal Club festival starts today and continues through Saturday, a mile out of the town centre or a bus from Westgate every few minutes, and in Mirfield, the Navigation festival started yesterday and runs till Sunday. The Navi. is next to Mirfield station, where there is a decent train service from Huddersfield, Leeds and Manchester (Calder Valley line).
Next weekend, July 7th/8th we have the Monkey Club festival at Armitage Bridge (frequent Metham bus from bus station and alight at the Valley garage). Huddersfield Camra's club of the year is a small venue and the festival bar is outside, so here's to a proper summer next weekend.
Just to keep the momentum going (and the bank account dry), the Star at Folly Hall (less than 10 mins. walk from town) starts their festival at 5pm Wednesday the 11th July, finishing at close of play Sunday 15th.
