2021 is the 33rd Cleckheaton Folk Festival (postponed from 2020 due to Covid19).

The festival has been transferred in full so we will have the same great line-up. We are a small, friendly Folk Festival based in the market town of Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire.  We hope to offer a range of activities, including large and small concerts, music sessions, singarounds, workshops, meets, a hiring fair and informal concerts in town centre cafes.

Our plan is to have the traditional Festival Parade on Saturday morning, a range of dance sides, street entertainers, a street market and, on Sunday afternoon, a Family Funday with a variety of child friendly events.

Artists appearing in 2021 include Peter Knight's Gigspanner Big Band, The Wilson Family, Bella Hardy Trio, Kimbers Men, Pete Coe, Bob Fox, Edwina Hayes and many more. All the above will be subject to Covid19 restrictions at the time. We look forward to meeting you all again.
