NORTH DORSET FOLK FESTIVAL celebrates it's 6th year in 2017. As (probably...) the smallest festival of it's kind in the UK it prides itself both on the presentation of fantastically talented artists and the intimate surroundings of the hall which allow the audience to be totally absorbed by the performances. Being recognised by both artists and audiences as one of the most up close and personal festivals, you can be sure that the day will leave a lasting impression on everyone with wonderful, lingering memories of the finest folk, roots and acoustic music. The festival opens at midday with the music starting at around 12.30pm. We expect to finish around 10.30pm. There is a bar and food available all day with plenty of free parking on site.

Past headliners have included Brendan Power and Tim Edey, Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo, Philip Henry and Hannah Martin, Nizlopi and Martin Simpson (pictured).
