Cottingham Folk Festival returns to the picturesque East Yorkshire village of Cottingham in East Yorkshire next summer from the 22nd of August to Sunday the 25th

The live music extravaganza will, once again, see an incredible line-up of artists descend on what is thought to be the largest village in the UK across the August Bank Holiday Weekend


Headlining are The Shires (main picture), Newton Faulkner, The Feeling and Lindisfarne with a full supporting cast including Tom Speight, Kezia Gill, Merry Hell, Hayley McKay, Gina Larner, and The Dunwells. Also confirmed are The Wandering Hearts.

The festival will also be returning to the intimate surroundings of St Mary's Church for three shows - headlined by Katherine Priddy, Lady Maisery, Callaghan and I Am Kloot's John Bramwell who will be supported by Liverpool's award-winning Robert Vincent.
