Wadebridge Folk Festival

Molesworth Street, Wadebridge, PL27

Business Details

We are a town-based festival, started in 1973 and have just held our our 47thouting. Wadebridge is a small town, and we use its existing spaces and venues, all of which are within easy walking distance.

From around midday on the Saturday to Monday, we run the outside FAR Stage (behind Wadebridge Wines in Eddystone Road, PL27 7AL); nine varied acts each day from Cornwall and the South-West, with music from the traditional to alt-folk and beyond. There’s food, and we run a bar featuring local beers, ciders and gin, plus wines and soft drinks. This space can accommodate around 300 people, and entry is £5 per day per person, or £8 for families.

From Friday to Monday evening, we hold a main concert in the Town Hall, The Platt, PL27 7AQ. Most nights there are two acts, though we have three on Monday. Again, we run a bar featuring local suppliers, plus wines, but no food. These gigs are usually seated, and the seated capacity is 230 people. On the Monday night we will probably take away some of the chairs to create a dancing space as well. Tickets are £17.50, or £25 for Steve Knightley (Thurs 22nd) and The Unthanks (Sat 24th). Half price for under 16s; free for under 5s.
