2021 festival film

Our official showreel from this year’s festival has been released as we get ready to put our 2022 tickets on sale on December 1.

Daily life from family fun to workshops, dance and live music was captured by Shrewsbury filmmakers Painted Life Productions.

We were one of the few folk festivals to take place in 2021, adjusting our format to accommodate covid safety measures such as open air stages and adapting its line-up. Director Sandra Surtees said the three-min film was a happy reminder of a “legendary festival”.

“We were absolutely determined that we would have a festival after being forced to miss 2020 due to the pandemic,” she said. “Our festivalgoers warmly embraced the changes we had to make and the feeling of goodwill and happiness to be back in together really comes across in the film. As well as reminding us of a legendary festival, it gives anyone who’s not been before a taste of what they can expect.”

We have also released many live performances from the 2021 festival on our YouTube channel including Show of Hands, Dervish and The Young’uns for fans to watch again.

Tickets for the 2022 festival, which will take place at the West Midland Showground in Berwick Road from August 26th to 29th, go on sale on December 1. Click here to sign up for a reminder!
