Update: 18th March 2020
Following the Government announcements this week in response to the Covid-19 crisis, we regretfully advise we have had to take the decision to cancel this year’s Wolverton Folk and Blues Fair which was to be held on 16th May.
Anyone who has already purchased tickets can return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.
We hope you understand the reasons for this decision being taken and we hope to be back next year.
The tenth annual Wolverton Folk and Blues Fair takes place in the stunning grounds of Wolverton Manor, Shorwell on Saturday 16th May 2020.
After a sell-out successful launch in 2011, the family-friendly festival has been gaining momentum with fantastic bands/artists each year along with locally produced food, children’s activities, tea tent and not forgetting the Real Ale tent!
