Welcome to our Festival web site!

Ticket sales are very good this year as we have a spectacular line-up of concert artists, dance bands, folk clubs, workshops and Morris Sides - see the 'Acts' tab on the left hand side of the screen for full details. Demand has been helped as we have been able to keep all event ticket prices the same as last year. (Unfortunately we have had to raise the camping price a little).

Upton Folk Festival is rightly known for the events outside the main stream of concerts and dances and we are continuing this with the re-introduction of the Duck Race. Full details of this are elsewhere on our web site but you can back a numbered duck in a race down the river for a cash prize - alternatively you can sponsor a decorated duck to promote a business, act, Morris side - or even just yourself.

Early booking is recommended to save disappointment either by post or by telephone to the TiC who accept credit and debit charges.

Looking forward to seeing you in May

2015 Inclement Weather Preparations
The committee have arranged a local alternative camp site which we can use if our usual one is flooded. This is Brickwalls Barn Camp Site, Gilberts End, a pleasant rural site about 3 miles outside Upton and well away from any potential floods. There is a seven acre field which will be available to the Folk Festival. We will, of course, provide a free shuttle bus service as we have in the past.
