“Beverley is one of my favourite festivals ever; small enough to have a friendly cosy atmosphere and yet big enough to book the very best in folk and roots music. I have had some of the best musical experiences of my life at Beverley. See you there!” Mike Harding
Whilst British folk music, both traditional and new, remains at the heart of the festival, we also feature Americana, world music, Blues, some classic rock, punk, a variety of acoustic performances, Morris sides and much more - if the music is good, we will embrace it. In recent years we have expanded to also encompass comedy, poetry, drama, literature and storytelling. Beverley Folk Festival provides a rich cultural mix, offering a weekend of memories for young and old.
Past line-ups have ranged from such legends as The Watersons, Steeleye Span, Oysterband, Show of Hands to Billy Bragg and the Proclaimers. Seth Lakeman, Bellowhead, Eliza Carthy and Paul Carrack to Joe Brown! Every year a fresh and unique programme is developed that caters for all tastes and ages.
