Welcome to the home page of Bedworth Folk Festival and thanks for visiting us!
Although over the years the Festival has grown into quite a large event it has still retained its unique “intimate” atmosphere: You can enjoy a whole week-end of music, song and dance for little more than the price of just a concert! - It’s a Festival to ”get involved in” - where the audience is (at least!) as important as the guests! - It's where the folk scene meets for its Christmas Party - for a good sing, dance and play, a good story, a good drink, some good company, and a really good time! - It’s the place to be at the end of the Festival season! ..... and it is the UK's biggest annual winter folk event!

We are delighted to welcome ANTHONY JOHN CLARKE to Bedworth for the very first time, he has been on our “wanted” list for some time so we are really chuffed to get him along for 2013, also new for this year is the energetic DAMIEN CLARKE, hurdy-gurdy player extraordinaire (you probably know him as the kilted one dancing about the stage with Pressgang!) who will be appearing for us solo - what a treat! By popular request BARRIE and INGRID TEMPLE make a return visit, over recent years they have been one of most talked about guests so they are a great addition. Plus of course the vast selection of Bedworth familiar faces, and a number of new ones, from both the local and the national folk scene. Have a look at the Guests page for a run down of what is booked in so far
