Shrewsbury Folk Festival

Shrewsbury Folk Festival is one of England’s top music festivals

Since it first moved to Shrewsbury, the Folk Festival has established itself as one of the premier events on the music calendar. Held over two days in the Shrewsbury show ground, just a short walk from Shrewsbury town centre. It is a real family occasion providing a safe self-contained environment to experience the very best in established and emerging artists.

On site camping, and fully stewarded there are side stalls and entertainment to complement the acts performing on the main stage.

With a high level of repeat visitors and tickets that generally sell faster than the proverbial hot cakes - our advice is book early!
