Folk Week has plenty of fun stuff – for all ages. Some for all the family to join in with, like the ever-popular family lunchtime ceilidh at the Pavilion on the Sands – or there are events for different age groups – many of these take place Baptist Centre which has its own lovely café – so a chance to have a cup of tea while the young’uns have fun. Usually you can pay on the door for these events – or in advance. Of course, they are included in your all-in Festival Tickets too.
We like to get people dancing, singing and playing – and the younger the better. There are going to be lots of opportunities in 2018 to be right at the centre of Folk Week. Many of the family events are completely free – most famously of course is the Hobby Horse Club at the Bandstand which welcomes all generations to singalong, dancealong and meet the Hooden Horses and feed Clarence the Folk Week Dragon.
They’ll be lots more details added over the next few months – but one thing you can be sure of – Pirate Day is back in 2018 – aaaaaaaaaarrr!
