Once again we are in All Saints Church, which proved to be such a popular new venue last year. This time we have the whole building all day so there will be more space for eating, drinking, catching up with friends, and informal music making.

 The bar and café will be open from 12 noon, including evening meals until 7.30 pm. Our popular festival merchandise will also be on sale. 

There will be a music and song session to start things off, then Welsh folk dance group Dawnswyr Delyn will dance at 1.45pm, and lead us into the afternoon concert.

Once again we have two fabulous concerts for you to enjoy – both held in the stunning All Saints Church with it’s beautiful acoustics.  One in the afternoon, at 2.30 pm,  features Full House, The Love Music Trust Young Folk Ensemble, SykesMartin and Virginia Kettle’s Rolling Folk. The evening concert at 8 pm features Cobalt Tales, Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne and SykesMartin.

There will be a teatime ceilidh at 7 pm with Full House and caller Baz Parkes, preceded by another display from Dawnswyr Delyn, and a further music & song session to round off the evening.

Raven Fledglings – 12 noon – 1.15pm

A free session for young musicians with experienced teacher Fluff Smith.

Bring your own acoustic instruments, learn some tunes and play them as an ensemble at the end.
