Ingleton Folk Weekend 29th Sept to 1st Oct 2017- C A N C E L L E D

... but there's still some stuff going on - see below.

The Ingleton Folk Weekend 2017 was to have been Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October but regrettably the committee has decided to cancel this year's event and is not planning to continue it going forward. An increasing number of similar festivals nearby has made it more difficult to generate enthusiasm locally.

Due to concern about numbers we have decided to pull the plug now rather than try to put on an event and end up with poor attendance.

We apologise to those who are disappointed by this decision but hope you understand the reason behind it. Thank you for your support in the past

However, the Folk Committee are pleased to confirm that both the Wheatsheaf and the Old Hill Inn are keen to continue the sessions which have always been the main attraction of the Folk Weekend. We hope that they will continue in future years without the need for formal organisation or fundraising.


These events will still take place
