The community led Folk Weekend returns for an 8th year from Friday 20th until Sunday 22nd April 2018 and will be based at venues around the city centre.

A weekend of Morris dancing, concerts and performances, a host of free song and music events, and a huge ceilidh.

Line-up

The headliner are False Light, Eliza Carthy, and The Furrow Collective, joined by Jackie Oates, Topette!!, Sam Carter, Ross Couper & Tom Oakes, Banter, Boldwood, Black Feathers, Mary Bateman, and more.

For all details as announced please see the line-up page.

Alongside this varied concert line-up, the festival promises ceilidhs, workshops, European-style dancing, Morris dance displays, and many free family events. Folk Weekend is proud to be paving the way in accessible and inclusive music-making, and is building on 2015's first 'relaxed' performance with a series of events during festival Saturday, which aim to encourage members of the community who may normally feel excluded from the folk arts. These Special Saturday events include a Makaton-signed performance of folk songs, a ceilidh for people with Special Needs, and a workshop exploring the use of technology in making music more accessible.
