Due to Covid 19, the 2020 festival is postponed till 15 - 17 October 2021
Now in its 6th year, Hartlepool has become a firm favourite in the UK folk festival calendar. With our festival village at the National Museum of the Royal Navy Hartlepool, you can explore the historic quayside and HMS Trincomalee, Europe's oldest warship, which even hosts concerts. Enjoy a fabulous weekend full of dance, stories, heritage, beautiful views of the North Sea coast, and of course one of the best folk music lineups of the year.
In 2021 we already have lots of special treats planned. Keep checking this site and social media for details.
“What an inspiring event, put on with a superb mixture of love and professionalism. It was a genuine pleasure to be involved.”
