After lengthy discussion, we’ve decided that there are too many uncertainties to give us the confidence to continue with this year’s festival as was planned. HOWEVER... subject to government guidelines, we very much hope to run a one day community celebration in Allendale on Saturday September 26th 2020 so hold that date! The event will be free entry but we’d appreciate donations on the day to support those taking part. We’ll bring you more info nearer the time. With 70% of the line-up agreed for this years festival, we’re going to continue building on this programme for next years Allen Valleys Folk Festival from September 24th – 26th. Online tickets already bought via Gigantic are valid for 2021 but buyers will also be offered a refund.Meanwhile, from next week we’ll start posting profiles and links to all artists who've performed at AVFF since we launched in 2014. We'll leave last year's line-up at the top of this page. ENJOY!
A BIT OF HISTORY
Established in 2014, Allen Valleys Folk Festival is a three day event celebrating the best in folk music, traditional dance and workshops. Not forgetting the spectacular community event in Allendale Market Square on the Saturday - the burning of a wooden sculpture representing the legendary Allendale Wolf.
