At the start of its fourth decade, Warwick Folk Festival is delighted to announce that it will be moving to Castle Park – adjacent to Warwick Castle and closer to town from its previous location at Warwick School.

The hugely popular 41st Warwick Folk Festival will return for another spectacular year from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 July, bringing the local community together for a celebration of folk history, dance and general revelry. Renowned for welcoming top artists from around the UK and the world, the festival also welcomes the community to a bustling festival village with family friendly activities and exciting fringe events across the town.

Joining Will Pound and his band on Warwick’s 2020 packed programme includes the now four-piece Show of Hands, the Canadian feel-good folk of Le Vent du Nord, three-time BBC 2 Folk Award-winning trio The Young’uns, as well as Nancy Kerr and Seth Lakeman.

Dick Dixon, Festival Director says, “We can’t wait to welcome our festival goers for another great year and in such an exciting location with beautiful views across the banks of the Avon.  The Festival has something for everyone, whether it’s superb music, camping, workshops, singing, dancing, sessions and giggles galore at what is one of the friendliest and established folk festivals around.”
