One of England's Top Folk Festivals - You can expect some of the top names from across the world, top names from the UK, and some of our best local talent.
Most of all , we have tried to find performers and combinations of artists that you wouldn’t necessarily find at other events - there are many festivals so we want you to expect something unique at Shrewsbury.
Festivals should reinforce your enjoyment of existing performers and send you on a voyage of discovery, and that is what Shrewsbury Folk Festival is all about. We are improving our existing festival site with the support of our local councils, and taking steps to make your holiday at Shrewsbury Folk Festival more comfortable and more exciting whether you are coming alone or with friends and family. We want this to be a place where you can feel welcome as an experienced folkie or a complete newcomer.
SFF is organised by a dedicated group of enthusiasts so there's no corporate planning here, just a love of music and dance. We hope that enthusiasm shows through in what we present and how we present it.
