Cornwall Folk Festival brings top local, regional, national and international artists to the North Cornwall town of Wadebridge each August Bank Holiday weekend.

With a program of over 100 hours of music that’s just over four days of continuous music, squeezed into this perfect long bank holiday weekend in the lovely town of Wadebrigde.  This town based Folk Festival  started back in 1973, so this will be it’s 51st year. Wadebridge is a small town, so they use its existing spaces and venues, all of which are within easy walking distance.

The main concert is in the Town Hall and on Thursday they have a Nos Lowen dance (a Cornish ceilidh) and then three nights of double-bills. Here they run a bar featuring local suppliers, plus wines. From around midday on the Saturday to Monday, they run the outside FAR Stage (just behind Wadebridge Wines in Eddystone Road)  here they have around nine varied acts on each day from Cornwall and the Southwest, with music from the traditional to alt-folk and beyond. There’s food, and they run a bar featuring local beers, ciders and gin, plus wines and soft drinks. Other venues include the Betjeman Centre and local pubs and cafes, as well as live music and dance performances on “Shanty Street” Molesworth Street.
