Workshops at Folk Week are very welcoming and a chance to try something new or brush up existing skills. Very often you will find the musicians who are on stage are teaching in the workshops – workshops sound very formal – but they’re not. They are a place to join in and get encouragement in a friendly atmosphere. Some instruments are incredibly popular and have large groups playing together – ukulele springs to mind! Whilst other subjects attract smaller numbers – whatever the make-up of the group – this is a great way to be part of Folk Week and meet some like-minded people.

If you buy an all-in Festival Ticket – they are included in the price. Book in advance online, or you can usually buy a ticket on the door – we can’t remember ever turning anyone away from a Folk Week workshop.

There will be a whole load of opportunities for young people to take part in their own events too. More details will be added further into 2019 – don’t forget all ages and abilities are welcome and there will be an indication of levels required for each workshop.
