The organisers of Bromyard Folk Festival are encouraging attendees to bring hats and suncream this year, in contrast to last year.

Lynne Barker, the festival director said “Everything is in place. Tickets are selling well. The weather is looking particularly fine, which is the only thing we can’t control! With the favourable forecast, we are looking forward to a fantastic weekend and would especially like to welcome our local people to come along, with weather appropriate clothing of course. I am local and really proud of what we have here, I want as many people as possible to enjoy this unique music festival on their doorstep.”

Headliners performing on the Main Stage include Kathryn Tickell and The Darkening, Flook, The Daoirí Farrell Trio, Rosier from Canada plus a great deal more.

The rest of the weekend of the folk festival is packed with music, singing, dancing, workshops, stories, crafts, food and drink.

The weekend will have a real family feel, with a wide variety of entertainers, activities, stories and songs with the bonus of free entry for children under 10 years old.

There will be a procession of Morris Teams along the High Street in Bromyard at 8.30pm on Friday accompanied by the Town Crier which is open to all to see.

The event takes place on 5th to 8th September. Tickets are on sale from the Bromyard Folk Festival website and will also be available from the on site Box Office from midday on 5th September.
