Friends of Folk Weekend

The FW tech teamFolk Weekend is a community festival that was started totally from scratch in 2012. Every single member of the organising committee is a volunteer, and we're working hard all year round to make sure we can keep bringing you the very best festival we possibly can. Ongoing support from our Friends is incredibly valuable to us in our fundraising efforts, and for that reason we give a 10% discount on any Friends package if you sign up to an annual subscription!
