Refolkus: Shrewsbury Folk Festival’s own unique Youth Festival. Find us at the Reef!
2017 was Refolkus’s 10th birthday at Shrewsbury Folk Festival and boy did we celebrate! There was cake (yum!), flowers (aw, shucks) and a whole lot of music, singing and dancing!
From budding fashionistas making super-cool t-shirts to big-top clowning shenanigans, songs about bananas and unbelievable trumpet solos… 2017 will definitely go down in the record books.
Why not take a look at some of the photos below (see if you can spot yourself!) and head over the SFF Facebook page to share your Refolkus 2017 top moment, and why it rocked your socks. We’d love to hear your highlights!
Congratulations as well to our first Refolkus graduates – all 10 years – kudos! But whether it’ll be your first year, your fifth year or your final year, you can be sure that some serious scheming is already well underway for an epic party in 2018!
All the legendary trad music and dance workshops will be back, bigger and better than ever before, as well as some completely different fresh new youth-only events to keep you on your toes over an action-packed weekend.
With more chances to strut your stuff on the stage, learn some completely awesome new skills and just chill out with new friends, if you’re aged 11-17, the Reef will definitely be the place to be. So don’t miss it!
