Bude and Stratton Folk Festival is a friendly mix of folk events held annually on the late May Bank Holiday weekend in this beautiful area of North Cornwall. It features music, song, dance, and storytelling, and there is a small programme of children’s events.
The Festival welcomes numerous talented guest performers, many internationally known, who give concerts and appear in other events during the festival. Local dance sides perform, and we are delighted to welcome children from local schools, who give a dance display on Saturday morning. Festival-goers can join in workshops, open mic stages, music sessions, sing arounds and a barn dance.
The Festival offers weekend tickets and individual event tickets at very fair prices. Book on the website http://www.budefolkfest.com or call 07736 374 003. Camping is available at the Rugby Club for weekend season ticket holders. Local campsites and accommodation can be found through Bude TIC.
