Save the date for Virtually Shrewsbury Folk Festival

 

The thought of an August Bank Holiday without our annual dose of SFF magic was unthinkable so we’ve created Virtually Shrewsbury Folk Festival to take place on Saturday and Sunday August 29 and 30. It will be two days of music, dance, workshops and other festival related fun to keep you going until the ‘real’ thing in August 2021.

We have been lucky enough to receive funding from Arts Council England’s Emergency Response Fund (thanks to all you National Lottery players) and Shropshire Council’s Emergency Arts Fund to put on Virtually Shrewsbury Folk Festival for which we are hugely grateful.

So SAVE THE DATE and get ready to enjoy your own virtual Shrewsbury Folk Festival at home! We’ll be announcing details about the line up, workshops and more over the next few months.

Festival Director Sandra: “We have incredibly loyal supporters and the festival is often their most anticipated weekend of the year.

“Although we can’t be together, we hope that people will enjoy recreating their own festival at home by joining in our virtual activities including workshops, dances or listening to their favourite artists.

“Of course it won’t be the same as being there but we hope that Virtually Shrewsbury Folk will go some way to filling the big void that we will all feel over the festival weekend. We are very grateful to the Arts Council and Shropshire Council for supporting us to deliver this programme that everyone can get involved with.”
