Cosby Yarn Bomb

The Cosby Yarn Bomb is an annual street art festival which aims to raise awareness of isolation, and improve wellbeing and community togetherness. Members of the Cosby community showcase their impressive yarn-work all over the village, all relating to a specific theme.

All yarn pieces are free to view throughout the event, and a fun day out can be made of walking through the village to find each one.

The theme for 2024 is Fun and Games, Mischief and Mayhem! We can’t wait to see what wonderful creations are produced this year.

Pop down any day from the 10th to 31st July 2024 and find some inspiration for your next creative project!
