THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Frome Folk Festival has been cancelled.

A statement from organisers says:
"With the disappointment of a few headliners availability and the wish to uphold the quality of the Festival and not to offer a programme that doesn't suit the ticket price, we have taken the decision to postpone the event to ensure the long-term viability and quality of the weekend.

Our volunteers and staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes for the past year to make a go of the 2013 event but it is now apparent that it is infeasible.

We are already planning interim events throughout 2013 in Frome to keep the folk flowing and hope to see you all in 2014
."
