Now in its sixth year, and staged by the non-profitmaking Woodworks Music and Dance organisation, Woodworks aims to encourage participation and enjoyment of the folk arts, drawing on assistance from the local community. Along with a UK-wide network of musicians, dancers, tutors and enthusiasts, opportunities are provided for people of all ages to come together to learn, listen, network, and enjoy live music.
Artists this year include: Dick Gaughan; Boo Hewerdine; Kirsty McGee; Jonny Dyer and Vicki Swan; and Mundy-Turner.
Apart from the performers, there are a variety of workshops on offer including shanties from the Bitter End, as well street performance, a festival market, festival crèche and a Young People's Festival with lots more going on at different venues around the town.
Concessionary tickets include children under 16 and the unwaged. Weekend tickets include admission to workshops.
