Friends of Folk Week are a vital financial and moral support for the festival and we are extremely grateful to them.


If you love Folk Week and want it to continue as it is – one of the few remaining festivals held in a town as opposed to in an enclosed green field site, then please support us.


Maybe you’re one of the local people who invite your friends and family down for the week to enjoy the festival and the atmosphere in the town? Find out below the benefits for you and how it helps us sustain the festival.


Benefits associated with the scheme:


  • Priority Booking on headline festival events
  • A Friends’ badge and Membership Card
  • 2 or 3 Free Tickets to a selection of events
  • A free Souvenir programme worth £5
  • Your name in the Souvenir Programme (if you join before 1st May)
  • Newsletters to keep you in touch with the Festival
  • Friends Get Together during the Festival
  • Access to The Jack Hamilton Bar during the Festival evening concerts
