Beverley Folk Festival

Beverley Folk Festival


A local festival with national and international appeal set in a family friendly environment.
For over 30 years Beverley Folk Festival has been producing an annual weekend event to be remembered. Offering the best new performers alongside some of the greatest established acts, it is a unique opportunity to spot tomorrow’s stars and enjoy today’s greats.

Located at Beverley Racecourse and adjacent to the ancient pasture land of Beverley Westwood, where the countryside meets the town, the event is situated in the perfect spot to ensure you have an unforgettable weekend.

Every year a fresh and unique programme is developed which caters for all tastes and ages.

Whilst British Folk music, both traditional and new, remains at the heart of the festival, we also feature Americana, World Music, Blues, some Classic Rock and much more…
If the music is good, we will embrace it.
We also encompass the Spoken Word, Literature, Poetry, Comedy and Dance.

Past line-ups have ranged from legends such as: Steeleye Span, Kate Rusby, Ralph McTell, Wizz Jones, The Watersons, Home Service, Show of Hands to The Bootleg Beatles, Hayseed Dixie, Billy Bragg, The Proclaimers, Chas ‘n’ Dave, New Model Army, Sean Hughes, Andy Kershaw, Lau, Thea Gilmore, Michael Morpurgo, Seth Lakeman, Bellowhead, Paul Carrack, Joe Brown and many more fabulous performers!

Beverley Folk Festival provides a rich cultural mix, offering a weekend of memories for young and old.

“Beverley is real gem of a festival! Every year there’s always a fine variety of established artists who represent the best of folk heritage, alongside young and upcoming talent that will knock your socks off.”
Festival Patron Mike Harding – Poet, Playwright and The Mike Harding Folk Show

“Attracting internationally acclaimed musicians, writers and artists, whilst also giving a platform for local and emerging voices, it’s a must-attend event for anyone who enjoys great live entertainment. Long may it continue to bring something special to East Yorkshire!” Festival Patron John Godber – Playwright
