We are sad to have to announce that Bury Folk Festival, scheduled for 27th
June 2020, has been cancelled because of the uncertainty caused by the
We felt that the responsible thing to do was to make a clear decision early;
we do hope the situation for everyone improves quickly, but to continue with
the preparations during these difficult times is not the right thing to do.
The safety of everyone involved is far too important to ignore. The lineup
we had for this year was the best yet and we will work with the artists to
see if they can rebook for next year.
Any tickets already bought will be fully refunded.
We wish you all the very best, stay safe and see you next year.

Some of the comments on previous Bury Folk Festivals
“I have to commend the top quality sound- really excellent for us on the stage and out in the audience. It is a really good little festival”
“The organisation before and on the day was excellent, the volunteers all very helpful and welcoming, the compères superb and the merchandising arrangements were excellent. The artists’ backstage area was spacious and fit for purpose and – the most important of all for artists – it was a great pleasure to have such a good sound and thanks to the sound guys for that. And, of course, a great line-up of acts which complemented one another but also provided good variety”
“It was a lovely day. Food was good and even catered for us veggies. I love the fact that you ‘keep it local'”
“Had a great time, thanks! The weather was stupendous, and spent my day listening to some top notch tunes. The atmosphere was relaxed and I hope everyone had a fab day”
