Banbury Folk Festival - Background

Banbury Folk Festival started in 2000 as a one day event but has grown into a full weekend attracting major artists and folk enthusiasts from all over the country.

Banbury, nestled on the eastern edge of the beautiful Cotswolds and close to the historic Civil War battle sites of Edgehill and Cropredy, is a great place to visit with its charming medieval shopping streets and alleyways.

The pedestrianised town centre provides a fabulous place to shop and a great venue for the Dance Sides and Hobby Horses to perform.
