Subject: RE: Holmfirth Festival of Folk 6-8 may 2011
I was going to let this thread die and stand aside to let Tyke's initial thread about this festival have a chance to take the reins and promote it as much as possible but he has allowed it to sink into oblivion and so is no longer promoting this brilliant festival. This is a great shame because this gem of a festival really deserves a big push - especially to people who have not been to it before because I know they will love it (and Holmfirth) so much......SO....I will...continue!!
Sorry Tyke.

So who is coming to this little gem of a festival?.. it has a brilliant line up of concerts and workshops and a strong "fringe" presence with singers and musicians in the local pubs and the streets full of morris dance teams adding lots of fun and colour throughout the weekend.

I can't do the blue clickety stuff but just key in "Holmfirth festival of folk" to pull up the festival web site for all the information you will need.

You can book your festival tickets and camping (a huge campsite just a short stroll from the village for tents, campervans and caravans with 24 hour security provided by stewards). You can even book 'camping only' at only 5pppn without having to buy a festival ticket to be able to camp - and not a lot of festivals offer that sort of flexibility and inclusion for every sort of folkie fan!
This festival really does cater for everyone.

And...did you know that "Show of Hands" are kicking off the festival on Thursday night (5 May) at The Picturedrome... Not bad hey!!
