Singers and musicians, street entertainers and Morris dancers – it seems that anybody and everybody who enjoys folk music heads for Warwick in July each year. Since its humble beginnings in 1979, the annual Warwick Folk Festival has developed into one of the most highly regarded folk events on the national and international scene, attracting fans from all over Britain and as far afield as the USA and Australia.
2018 is our 39th festival! If you’ve not been for years, come and see what’s changed. If you’ve never been to Warwick Folk Festival, come and see what you’re missing!
Warwick Folk Festival has become a major highlight on the British music calendar attracting people from all over the country and beyond. One of the attractions of the Festival is the live music and dance which is programmed around the town centre including hotels and public houses.
The festival takes place at Warwick School and offers a fantastic family day out with workshops, storytelling, theatre, music and dance, as well as a real ale & cider festival, wine bar and craft market. There is also a free concert and dancing in the Market Place.
