Welcome to our Festival web site!

Upton Folk Festival 2014 was a fantastic success in the real Upton Style serious sunshine, cracking concerts, delicious dances, superb sessions, wonderful workshops, brilliant boat trips, perfect procession and bl**dy morris men! My thanks must go to all the people who worked so hard over the last year to produce such an excellent weekend. The artists, performers, folk clubs, and, I suppose, the bl**dy Morris men make the festival and the welcome from townspeople of Upton completes it. Thank you everybody.

Turning our attention to 2015, ARTISAN, ALISTAIR ANDERSON, POLKAWORKS, STEAMCHICKEN, JIM MAGEEAN & GRAEME KNIGHTS and MARTYN HARVEY are already on our guest list and the artistic director is working hard, as I write, to produce an even better line up than this year (see acts/artists) and there will be, of course the inevitable BL**DY Morris men.

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.
