All things great and small!

Great….. The fabulous Jacqui McShee's PENTANGLE, ahab, Vin Garbutt, Isla St Clair, John Tams & Barry Coope, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan, Tom McConville Band and the powerful Tickled Pink at one of the 4 ceilidhs are there, with many, many, other great artists will be there.

Small now…….but young artists who are on the road to fame like Newcastle Folk Degree students Mellissa Whitehead & Andy Watt and Scott Hartley & Marit Falt or local rising star Luke May and his band will be playing on Friday evening. Those who do not like the big concerts and events there are lots of smaller, intimate venues with acoustic concerts, meet the artists sessions, sing a round's including a Big Sing with invited guests and the now 'famous' Sunday singing breakfast, storytelling and singing boat trips.

Good value for money! …. A full weekend for only £50! Day tickets for £18 (Friday evening/Sunday afternoon) £36 (Saturday All Day)    *Individual event tickets on the door subject to capacity in each venue.

Where to Stay? .... Indoor/outdoor camping (campers/caravans & tents) is available at only £15 for the weekend or £10 a night and there is plenty of B&B/Hotel accommodation in the town and surrounding area. There is plenty of parking in the vicinity if you just want to come for a day. Much more than in previous years with the Castle Quay North Car Park staying open until 11.30pm on Friday and Saturday evenings especially for the festival.

When does it start? ….. Tomorrow, Friday 7th October. Hurry and get your tickets now before it sells out! You can book on-line or with Debit/Credit card. For details see the website.

Where is it?    Well…. Banbury Folk Festival of course! Check out all the latest info on the Website or our Facebook page Banbury Folk Festival.

See you there!
