Festival Information

Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2014 Overview

The Shrewsbury Folk Festival is a four day event, which blends traditional folk music and dance together with musical and cultural diversity in a family friendly format with something for everyone, it provide the opportunity to discover new artists from both the UK and the rest of the world.

Music: At Shrewsbury Folk Festival they’re proud to programme a distinctive mix of folk and roots music; they want the line-up to feel like the Shrewsbury Folk Festival, and totally distinct from any other festival out there.

Dance: The last few years have seen dance grow to become a major part of the festival – with both social and display dance taking on a prominent role in their event.

Food: Their food area is at the centre of the festival site, next to the main bar and just behind the main marquee, so access to some great food is only a minutes’ walk away from the hub of the site.

Kids: Their programme for kids has grown in the last couple of years, and the younger festival goer can journey into another world of creativity and excitement that is packed with activities, theatre, storytelling, circus skills and music.

Ticket prices (from): Adult Early Bird £120 or £140 including Camping.

Artists booked to appear include Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman, Lau, The Dhol Foundation, Steve Knightley’s Wake the Union, The Full English, Four Men and a Dog, Martin Simpson, Karine Polwart, and Steve Tilston Trio.
