Welcome to the official Gower Folk Festival Website. The festival takes place every June and comprises 3 days of fantastic folk music. The festival is held on the beautiful Gower Peninsula at an award winning Public House which incorporates its own micro-brewery. Our festival is unique in that both performers and audiences become members of an exclusive musical party. Ticket sales are limited (350 – 400) so each and every music lover attending is certain to feel the close atmosphere generated throughout the 3 day event. Camping facilities are available on site making for an easy transition from sleeping bag to festival activities, be they workshops or live performances from top folk artistes. In addition to the attractions offered by the festival it should be noted that The Gower Peninsula is a well known area of outstanding natural beauty with sandy beaches, ruined castles and wild ponies. All within walking distance of the festival site and well worth exploring. Thank you for reading this introduction. Want to know more? - Simply follow the links.
THREE FANTASTIC DAYS
The festival takes place at The Greyhound Inn, Oldwalls, Gower, SA3 1HA. The Greyhound is a warm, welcoming and friendly pub. It is a traditional 19th century inn with a well-stocked bar offering a selection of real ales from its very own award winning Gower Brewery. Readily available food is home-cooked and, wherever possible, locally sourced. There is always a variety of ‘Specials’ available at the Greyhound which may (and usually does) include locally caught sea bass and Gower salt marsh lamb.
The Gower Folk festival & The Greyhound together offer on-site camping, good food and drink and of course the excellent music!
