Event description

Description

Welcome to the 25th Swanage Folk Festival. The folk festival has come a long way since our first day of dance in 1992. It has grown into a full and varied weekend of music and dance. From Friday 8th September to Sunday 10th September our small seaside town on the beautiful Jurassic coast of Dorset will fill up with hundreds of colourful dancers and the town will resonate to the sound of bells jingling, sticks thwacking and excellent music.

The hub of the festival is Sandpit Field, with a concert marquee and festival bar, the festival information tent and dozens of colourful craft stalls. Over the weekend concerts will take place at venues around the town featuring artists including Nancy Kerr and the Sweet Visitor Band, Le Vent du Nord, Jamie Smith’s Mabon and Belshazzar’s Feast. Full details of the weekend fun can be found on the festival website, www.swanagefolkfestival.com.

There will be opportunities to get involved with workshops, music sessions in the local pubs and the free entertainment on Sandpit Field for the young of all ages. For something more energetic there is the festival dance at the Swanage School on Saturday night and a special children's dance on Saturday afternoon.

Over 50 traditional dance teams will gather to entertain you. Displays take place all over the town and a spectacular dance parade takes place on Saturday afternoon. All the dance sides ask in return is loud applause and your spare small change.

We look forward to seeing you over the festival weekend.
