12th to 14th June 2020
Weobley Castle Farm
Following government advice to limit social interactions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gower Folk Festival scheduled for June 2020 will be postponed until 2021. While this is hugely disappointing to us all, the health of everyone involved in the festival and those hoping to attend must be our priority. The good news is that the Gower Folk Festival will be back in June 2021, and we are hoping that most of the acts booked for this year will be able to join us next year. All ticket holders will of course be entitled to a full refund.
At this difficult time, please spare a thought for the musicians whose livelihood will be affected by this year’s disruption. We would encourage you to support them in any way you can, for example by purchasing albums or other merchandise – and of course seeing them live once circumstances allow!
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, which in 2020 will be 12th to 14th, and is again being held 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.
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!
