Welcome to Banbury Folk & Hobby Horse Festival 2016
The friendly festival right in the heart of Banbury
We are delighted to welcome you to the 17th Banbury Folk Festival. An intimate festival with a range of top quality artists and events to appeal to folk fans, whether their preference is traditional or contemporary. There are also plenty of opportunities to join in. Town venues are all indoor and within easy walking distance with a shuttle bus service to the campsite.
Banbury Folk Festival has become synonymous with everything that is good about the English folk scene. It takes place in a conventional market town but is anything but staid; instead is provides a range of music, song and dance that has its roots in the past but is very much alive and kicking in the present. It is accessible, geographically, financially and conceptually - it is Folk.
