The 37th Warwick Folk Festival takes place this weekend and it is expected to attract thousands of visitors.

For the first time, the organisers are offering one-night camping options for those that can only attend for one night.

This year the Festival is organising a dedicated programme of workshops, performances and activities for those aged 12 - 25. Also new for this year is the Kids Zone which has been moved into one space on the main stage, close to the craft fair & food stalls.

"Ticket sales are going exceptionally well and I would strongly urge those who want to attend to book their tickets now.

With many superb headline acts and something for everyone, the Festival promises to be a fantastic fun-filled 4 day weekend of first-class entertainment for all tastes and ages”.

– Dick Dixon, Festival Director
