Shrewsbury Folk Festival returns late summer (West Mid Showground, Friday 23 - Monday 26 August) with four days of folk, Americana, blues and world music.

Steeped in history, the border town of Shrewsbury provides an ideal backdrop for the festival’s mash-up of modern, medieval and everything in between, where grassroots cultures collide in dynamic fusion styles. 

The line-up for 2024 includes Elkie Brooks, Gangstagrass, Peatbog Faeries, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Mary Black, Eric Bibb, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Ward Thomas, Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle, Mànran,The Longest Johns, El Pony Pisador, and more.

All ages are well catered for at Shrewsbury Folk Festival with Panemonium (over 5s) and Wee Folkies (under 5s) providing plenty of entertainment and activities to keep younger audiences entertained. The festival also hosts Refolkus, a unique youth festival for 11 to 20 year olds featuring a variety of creative workshops - including music, crafts, dance and much more...

We are offering one reader the chance to win two adult weekend camping tickets for this year’s get-together.
