Shrewsbury Folk Festival
Where is it? West Midlands Showground, Berwick Road, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY1 2PF England
A friendly vibe, brilliant activities for all ages, and headliners such as the Imagined Village mean that tickets for this folk event go like hot potatoes.
Aside from the many acts playing the two principal marquees, you’ll find acoustic concerts, singarounds and workshops going on all over the site, plus Morris dancing, ceilidhs and clog dancing in the massive dance tent, which boasts a 1,000 m² dance floor. Should you get carried away, a qualified osteopath and masseur are on site to sort out any aches and pains!
The kids will be made up with two tents' worth of fun and games: zero boredom factor guaranteed with everything from costume and lantern-making to South African gum boot dancing on the menu. Plus there’s 'Refolkus', a dedicated programme of music, singing and arts workshops for 12-25 year olds; as well as folk music, they could try their hand at samba drumming or rapping with swords!
There are plenty of shopping opportunities too, both music-related and at the craft fair, which offers handmade pottery, jewellery, accessories and children's books and games.
