Filey Folk Festival returns next weekend to the festival calendar after a 4 year absence. Its based at the Station Pub, Church Street, in Filey, a venue that lends itself perfectly for a good intimate festival like Filey's. There's a small amplified concert stage for pre booked acts, but also for players arriving for the weekend on spec to get up and do a few tunes after midnight until 2 in the morning. Not only that, there will be a marquee covered beer garden and another 2 sectioned rooms at the pub to allow singing/jamming/sessions to continue all day and night even while concert performances are on. Also the landlord's Andy & Andy are laying sandwiches on for ALL players (around teatime on the Saturday & Sunday).

The new organiser of the event has never organised a 'Folk' festival before - and judging by the concert line up it could have a more contemporary feel than previous Filey Folk Festival's. That said, there are some cracking, up and coming acts booked - Pilgrims Way & Rebekah Findlay (both recently featured on Mike Harding's Folk Show), Scarborugh's Joe Solo, Jesse Hutchinson and Amaya & Alistair Huntly. Whitby's Richard Grainger, Wendy Arrowsmith and North Yorkshire 'supergroup' Fiddlyn Man Doris.

There is also 'Guitar' George Bates, despite only being 12 years old, got noticed after a splendid rendition of Bob Dylan's 'She Belongs To Me'.

So bring an instrument or a voice on Friday 29th April to Sunday 1st May 2011, it's the return of the Filey Folk Festival - Sun, Sea, Hobgoblin ale and a hell of a lot of good music.

Pity it coincides with the Moor and Coast do just up the coast at Whitby.

Can't be in two places at once I'm afraid.

Anyone got any ideas where we might park our camper van?

We're on the bill and I've just tried to book a camping site and they're all full. Bit of a pain!

I believe there is the Filey Brigg Caravan & Camping Park (10 minute walk from the Station Pub) tel. no 01723 513852. But I suspect that's the one thats full ? At the bottom of West Avenue there is a carpark, do not know if they allow overnight parking. Crows Nest Caravan & Campsite is just outside Filey 01723 582206.

Thanks Bones. The sites you mention are full and none of the car parks allow overnighting.

However, we're now sorted....... thanks to Sewerby Hall Old Time Picking weekend, which is just down the road. So we'll just split our time between the 2 events!
