Known until last year as the Bridgnorth Folk Festival, the Shrewsbury Folk Festival is a four day event blending a tradition of folk music and dance from the UK and around the world.

The 2007 line-up has now been announced, and includes:- Paul Brady, Kate Rusby, Salsa Celtica, Bellowhead, Show of Hands, Peatbog Faeries, Kathryn Tickell, and more - click here for the details (as available).

For 2007 the festival is moving its location across the river, from Quarry Park to the West Midlands Showground. The new venue is flat, has tarmac roadways throughout and there is ample free parking. There are also flushing toilets and showers, and buildings for workshops and sessions plus improved access for those with disabilities.

Other additions to the festival will be an on-site shop, a shuttle bus service into Shrewsbury town centre, seated marquees, and an increased capacity. There will still be a bar selling real ales and caterers selling a wide variety of food but it is worth noting that the ticketing policy will be changing too.

There will be no festival village tickets, no daytime only tickets except on Monday and no evening only tickets. However the combined all day and evening ticket (a one day season ticket) will still be available. One day season tickets will be restricted in numbers to be fair to weekend season ticket holders. If venues fill up, the festival will have a pass-out system to enable you to retain your seat inside the venue. Tickets are available to buy online here.

As well as two fully-seated stages, there will also be an Open Mic marquee, ceilidhs, a dance display area, children’s and youth’s events, singarounds, workshops, plus opportunities to 'Meet the Artist'. There are also many events taking place in the town of Shrewsbury itself.
