Warwick Folk Festival moves to a New Venue

Warwick Folk Festival moves to a New Venue, and we at City Nites are very excited about it!

At the start of its fourth decade, Warwick Folk Festival is set to move venue for 2020. Having previously been at Warwick School, the festival will be closer to town this year as it relocates to Castle Park, adjacent to Warwick Castle.

Furthermore, Highlights include Will Pound, Show of Hands, Le Vent du Nord, The Young’uns, Nancy Kerr and Seth Lakeman plus plenty of energetic ceilidhs, sing-arounds, dance and crafts from July 23 to 26, 2020.

Festival director Dick Dixon said: “We can’t wait to welcome our festival goers for another great year and in such an exciting location with beautiful views across the banks of the Avon.

“The Festival has something for everyone, whether it’s superb music, camping, workshops, singing, dancing, sessions and giggles galore at what is one of the friendliest and established folk festivals around.” Find out more here.
