The 2020 Shrewsbury Folk Festival takes place from August 28th to 31st and will provide four days packed with fantastic music, dance, and entertainment all on a centrally located site in the heart of Shrewsbury.

There are five music venues, a dance marquee with acclaimed ceilidh bands, dozens of workshops, a craft fair, well stocked bars, a children's festival and Refolkus for 12 to 25-year-olds – with on-site camping for weekend ticket holders.



We aim to make your stay with us safe, comfortable and full of never to be forgotten, happy experiences.

An exciting family holiday, a place to make new friends and meet up with old friends, an inclusive friendly atmosphere whether you are an experienced folkie or a complete newcomer, whether you come with friends or on your own.

As far as the music is concerned, Shrewsbury Folk Festival has a reputation for delivering the very finest acts from the UK and around the world, always searching to find new authentic artists as well as providing a platform for established performers, and never forgetting to add some fun and diversity to our concerts. We try to bring quality in depth, and we recognise the need to give our artists and audiences the best stages, in the best marquees, with the best sound and lighting possible.

When you arrive, all of your needs are catered for. A fantastic campsite where you are never more than a few moments from a venue and where you park your vehicles next to your tent or caravan. We have the best set of on-site caterers on the folk (or any other) scene, great bars, proper flushing toilets and loads of excellent showers.

On-site WiFi coverage is limited but free of charge, we want you to stay in touch, but we can’t offer unlimited download time. We have loads of events and entertainment for children and young people, workshops for everyone and brilliant sessions both organised and impromptu. We provide free buses into town, an excellent on-site shop, a craft fair, a huge free car park, dance displays, open mic, and friendly, helpful stewarding teams.

Shrewsbury Folk Festival… you can’t imagine how much you will discover!

Disabled Access Information

Access and facilities for people with disabilities

We try our best to make sure the festival is accommodating for people with disabilities. There is wheelchair access at most venues and a limited number of accessible viewing spaces in both concert marquees.

There is also a designated camping area (not bookable in advance but big enough to accommodate everyone) situated close to wheelchair accessible flushing toilets and showers.

The whole site is totally flat and has tarmac roadways.

Battery charging is available for electric scooters and wheelchairs – ask our campsite wardens.

Car parking space (situated close to performance venues) is reserved for Blue Badge holders.
