Description:The festival has built up a proud reputation as one of the country's leading folk events which blends traditional music with international artists.

Shrewsbury is also renowned for the international musicians it chooses to appear at the festival.

But it's more than just a music festival, there's also a packed programme of dance, workshops, and entertainment at the showground in Berwick Road from August 24th.

The festival includes a strong traditional dance element with a dedicated dance marquee and a village stage for dance displays.

There is also a children's festival, a youth programme, Refolkus for 12 to 25 year-olds, a craft fair, a range of on-site caterers and bars that are the envy of many another festival, and events and music sessions around Shrewsbury.

The fantastic campsite means you're never more than a few moments from a venue but you can still pitch up next to your friends and have your vehicles next to your tent or caravan.

Free on-site WiFi, free buses into town, an excellent on-site shop, a huge free car park, dance displays, an open mic competition, and friendly, helpful stewarding teams help to complete the atmostphere that keeps many festival goers coming back year after year.
