14th to 16th June 2019
Weobley Castle Farm
Welcome to the official Gower Folk Festival Website. The festival takes place on the second weekend in June and comprises 3 days of fantastic folk music. The festival is being held at the historic Weobley Castle Farm on the beautiful Gower Peninsula. 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.
The festival takes place at Weobley Castle Farm, Llanrhidian, Gower, SA3 1HB. The wonderful, fourteenth century, ruined Weobley Castle stands proudly in the middle of this wonderful, fully-working sheep farm on the edge of the tidal salt marshes of North Gower on the Gower Peninsula with panoramic views of the Loughor Estuary stretching out towards West Wales.
Our catering and full bar will, as always, be provided by Chris, lately of the Greyhound and now the proud proprietor of The Rake & Riddle, Penclawdd. The welcoming and friendly staff will be serving a selection of real ales from its very own award winning Gower Brewery including the famous Gower Gold as well as a well stocked bar. There will be hot food available all day including two festival specials every evening. The food is home cooked and locally sourced whenever possible. Don’t forget to try our Gower salt marsh lamb!
The Gower Folk festival & Weobley together offer on-site camping, good food and drink and of course the excellent music!
