This three-day village festival, on the edge of the beautiful South Pennines, features some of the very best performers in traditional music, song and dance from Britain and beyond. We moved to a new site in 2015 and it is here we will be developing the facilities and bringing you another crop of top quality musicians. Headliners are ANXO LORENZO TRIO from Galicia, RURA from Scotland and BBC Singer of the Year NANCY KERR from England. There are over 30 other performers and groups including Allan Yn Y Fan from Wales, the ever popular Belshazzar’s Feast, young songwriter Sam Kelly and shanty singing from The Young ‘Uns and Kimber’s Men.
But Shepley Spring Festival really is a great deal more than simply a folk festival.
Voted ‘Village Festival of the Year’ in 2012, the local community has embraced the event enthusiastically to make it a really friendly, family weekend with a huge range of things to entertain everyone.
Venues and pubs around Shepley village will host dance displays, music, dance and song sessions and workshops plus a full programme of children's activities.
Weekend tickets are on sale on line and by post... see the ticket page for details.
