  4. Demonstrations of morris dancing and traditional folk dance

plus much more!

                                               SO WHAT'S NEW & IMPROVED?


Improved children's area

This year the children's area has even more to offer, including free workshops and activities for  all ages from the homemade instruments of The Ragtime Jug Orchestra to storytelling and 'Broomsticks to Barleycorn' - a journey through the traditions of the year in song, dance and drama.

Roving Storyteller

You'll no doubt have seen the storytelling tent at previous Folk Festivals but this year there is no need for you to go to the storyteller, they will come to you as they wander the site spinning magic tales and keeping listeners enthralled.

English Ceilidh

In a first for Crawley Folk Festival there will be an English Ceilidh on the Saturday afternoon, with music from Zoox and caller Fee Lock will take you through the dances.

Adrian Edmondson and The Bad Shepherds

We are thrilled to announce that The Bad Shepherds will be taking to the stage with lead singer Adrian Edmondson (The Young Ones, Bottom, Holby City) singing famous punk songs with a folk twist.

Crawley Celtic & Irish Society Stage

There's also the premiere of The Celtic and Irish Stage with vibrant, colourful dancing and toe-tapping music throughout Sunday.
