Hartlepool Folk Festival 

3 St Hilda Crescent

Hartlepool TS24 0JB


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.

This year we have special treats planned including The North Sea Suite, a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Dave & Toni Arthur's album Hearken to the Witches Rune, and a cabaret full of iconic show tunes performed by your favourite folk artists! And, as always, our hilarious panel game Never Mind the Bandoggs.

“What an inspiring event, put on with a superb mixture of love and professionalism. It was a genuine pleasure to be involved.” 

Peggy Seeger
