Design the festival t-shirt and tea towel competition – deadline extended

For 2015, we’re offering you the chance to get creative and design the festival’s commemorative t-shirt.

Open to 2015 ticket holders only, the prize will be a free 2015 t-shirt and a free ticket to SFF in 2016 as well as that warm, fuzzy feeling you’ll get when you see people wearing the top you designed!

Email your design to, clearly marked ‘T-shirt competition’ by March 31 – it needs to be in a Word or PDF format.

All we ask is that no more than 3 colours are used and that the words Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2015 feature somewhere. Don’t forget to include your name and telephone number in case we need to contact you.

Children’s competition 

If you’re looking for something to keep the kids amused, this could be the answer! We’ll be selling a Shrewsbury Folk Festival tea towel this year and would like our younger visitors to have a hand in designing it.

As with the t-shirt, fewer colours and a simple design work best for reproduction but we would like them to design a tea towel that reflects what they enjoy about the festival. The prize will be the chance to enjoy a free meal on us (meal vouchers for up to a family of 4), a selection of free festival merchandise and the child’s name on the finished product.

Please send entries to, clearly marked ‘Teatowel competition’ by March 31 in a Word or PDF format.

Again, use no more than 3 colours and the design should feature the words Shrewsbury Folk Festival somewhere. Don’t forget to include the name and age of the child and contact details for an appropriate adult in case we need to get in touch.

* The winners of both competitions will be notified by email and publicised in a future emailout and on social networks.
