Beverley Folk Festival, be there annually in June

A shortlister for Best UK Family Festival, the Beverley Folk Festival at Beverley Racecourse takes place annually in June and always features an impressive line-up of legendary and best new artists, music broadcasters, off the wall comedians, children’s activities and Festival Fringe events across the cathedral town’s many real ale inns and super cool bars. This annual folk festival has been here in Beverley for over 30 years – Patron Mike Harding describes it best as a friendly festival with a cosy atmosphere, yet big enough to book the best in folk and roots music.
