Annual festival takes places in Todmorden, West Yorkshire

Tor Festival takes over the market town of Todmorden once again later this month for a weekend of very locally-centred activities in intimate surroundings.

This year's festival will kick off on September 30 with an opening concert at the Golden Lion featuring folk from Magpahi, a new vocal and electronics duo consisting of Sophie Cooper and Julian Bradley. The weekend's main activity take place the following day on October 1 at Todmorden Unitarian Church with Bong headlining as well as Tom Carter of Charalambides featuring on the bill. Belgian Ignatz plays too as will Samara Lubelski who will present her take on gleeful pop.

Elsewhere at the festival, there's noisy experimentation from Ashtray Navigations and Early Mammal as well as sound art from Ryoko Akama among a whole host of other entertainment. Tor Festival runs from September 30 - October 2. To get all the details and tickets, head here.
