The Bromyard Folk Festival

The Bromyard Folk Festival takes place every year in Bromyard, Herefordshire. This traditional song and dance festival has over 75 events and takes place in over three venues. Beyond the talented dancers and singers that perform, there are also morris processions, children's entertainment, workshops, a craft fair, dance lessons and much more. There are also ceilidhs, which are traditional Gaelic social dances. These are just a few of the activities available and each day has a full schedule of dances and concerts.

The festival takes place on the first full weekend in September. There is always a great line-up of famous national and beloved local performers for each event and unlike many festivals, all of the money is used for one charitable aim, which is to promote and support traditional song and dance by paying for the Festival itself.
