Still very excited about Shepley Spring Festival in May we are already starting to plan for 2016. The 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. Already confirmed are the ANXO LORENZO TRIO from Galicia, RURA from Scotland and the TOM McCONVILLE BAND from N.E. England.
But the 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 already on sale at a Summer Special discount price. These will be available throughout the summer festival season only and details can be found on the ticket page. Have a fun filled festival season and keep checking back here as our plans unfold!
