Music, dance and song all week long!

Everyone has a different Folk Week – ask 50 people what is their favourite part of the festival and they will each tell you something completely different! 

Whether you are family looking for child-friendly events, younger generation wanting to burn off some dance energy or singers and musicians seeking out a session – Folk Week has something for you.

The festival takes place all over the town and there’s hardly a venue that isn’t bursting with song, music and dance. All venues are within walking distance – although we admit that getting down the hill to the sea is easier than getting back up!

HEADLINE ACTS The Concert Marquee is where you’ll find all the headline acts performing, located in the middle of the town and a ten-minute walk from the campsite.

ENTERTAINMENT FOR EVERYONE During Folk Week there is plenty for all ages to take part in – from the Shooting Roots workshops to the Toddlers’ Singalongs. There is a full programme for families and young people – just click on Young Folk to find out.

You can tailor make your festival experience to suit you. With over 70 events a day, you’ll find something to entertain you from early till late. You can just buy one concert ticket to see your favourite act – or if you want to go for total immersion – then a full Season Ticket is an unbeatable option. There are day season tickets, weekend and week Season Tickets, with or without camping. Parents can relax while the kids are practicing their Diablo skills at building a mad monster in the craft workshops. All events for children and adults are included in the price. And under 7’s go free!

A ten-minute walk from town, the festival campsite has showers, toilets, food tent, the wonderful Panic Circus, children’s teatime events, country dancing and late night entertainment for Season Ticket holders. Most of the Social Dance programme is here too. Pitch your tent, park your car and forget about it until it’s time to leave.
