CANCELLED: Bury Folk Festival

We are sad to have to announce that Bury Folk Festival, scheduled for 27th June 2020, has been cancelled because of the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 Coronavirus.We felt that the responsible thing to do was to make a clear decision early; we do hope the situation for everyone improves quickly, but to continue with the preparations during these difficult times is not the right thing to do.The safety of everyone involved is far too important to ignore. The lineup we had for this year was the best yet and we will work with the artists to see if they can rebook for next year.Any tickets already bought will be fully refunded.We wish you all the very best, stay safe and see you next year.

Music-lovers can look forward to a great day out this summer, as the 6th Bury Folk Festival once again brings its own brand of magic to the town.

The one-day event will be on Saturday 27th June 2020 in the beautiful setting of the walled garden at Nowton Park. With craft stalls, children's activities, music workshops, hot food and a bar with local real ales, this promises to be a wonderful day for the whole family.

The festival is organised by a small group of gigging musicians to promote a range of excellent local and national folk acts.

As well as the main stage acts, there will be an Acoustic Tent with beginners' music workshops, informal sessions and a place for newcomers to folk performance to display their skills. This is a great space to try making music yourself in a relaxed and friendly way.

Full disabled access to site, reserved parking & viewing area and toilet facilities.
