Cheshire Folk Festival is new for 2024. Although there is a folk festival in Chester (and very good it is too), we felt the county of Cheshire should have a festival in its own name, representing as many artists from the county (and beyond) as possible.  We are fortunate to have an abundance of talent available, covering the wide ranging genre, we call folk. Our aim is to bring you the very best on offer.


Hope Farm

Hope farm is based in Dutton Northwich, and offers a beautiful backdrop for the event. There are spacious camping areas and the perfect setting for marquees, stage and traders. 

Workshops will also be a feature, including, fiddle and guitar workshops.
