Welcome

This wasn’t quite the gathering we were

hoping for this August Bank Holiday but we

hope our virtual festival will go some way to

delivering your annual dose of Shrewsbury

Folk Festival magic in these strange times.

As you would expect, there’s a little bit of

everything you would normally enjoy during a

weekend of folk fabulousness at the festival.

Some brilliant music, workshops to try your hand at new

skills, the chance for a dance, fun for the kids and the

opportunity to catch up with your festival friends in the bar.
