Shepley Spring Festival 15th-17th May 2020
This friendly springtime festival is set in the West Yorkshire countryside, yet handy for access from both M1 and M62 motorways. The festival showcases local, nationally and internationally acclaimed traditional musicians, singers and dancers. This welcoming little festival also has a range of children’s activities and is completely dog friendly. You loved the new festival venue, in the bluebell woods, with on site accommodation and warm cosy indoor space. For 2020 we are making a few changes giving you a bigger concert room, larger camping field and more parking.
SHEPLEY SPRING FESTIVAL 2020 CANCELLED

As disappointing as it may feel for everyone connected with the
festival, we are aware that this situation is going to be difficult for
the live music industry, with many self-employed musicians,
technicians, agents etc impacted. We therefore encourage our
festival-goers to support the artists you enjoy in whatever way you
can. For example, purchasing albums or merchandise from some of
the bands you are hoping to see next year… maybe looking at
learning a new instrument online… or getting a tune written for
a special occasion.
Keep safe, and we hope to see you in 2021.
