10th to 12th June 2022
Tickets for 2022 are selling fast, and it looks like this year will be a sell-out. Book now to avoid disappointment !
Join us for three days of fantastic folk music on the beautiful Gower Peninsula. The festival usually takes place on the second weekend in June, at Weobley Castle Farm. This working sheep farm lies on the edge of the tidal salt marshes of the north coast of Gower. At the heart of the farm is a 14th Century Castle with panoramic views of the Loughor Estuary stretching out towards West Wales.
There will be a full programme of workshops over the weekend for everyone to participate in and hone their musical skills with guidance from experts from our guest list. We also have a programme of children’s entertainment on Saturday and Sunday. Other activities include dancing by Sweyn’s Ey Morris.
Camping facilities are available on site making for an easy transition from sleeping bag to festival activities. Refreshments will be provided by Chris and Emily Mabbett (proprietors of the popular Rake and Riddle in Penclawdd), including real ales from the award winning Gower Brewery.
The Gower Folk Festival together with partners The Rake & Riddle and Weobley Castle Farm offer good food and drink, a spectacular venue and of course the excellent music!
