Frequently Asked Questions

What is the line-up for Folk Weekend 2022?

The programme is available here.

Who are your partner organisations?

You can find out here.

Do you just put on music?

No we do not! As well as having an amazing range of music acts both local and national, workshops, sessions, and two choirs, we also have social dances and morris dancing. 

How do I buy tickets for your events?

We will list all festival events on this website, with links to buy tickets. (Events put on by our partner organisations will link to their box office.)

What does 'pay a little less/pay a little more' mean?

For events promoted by Folk Weekend Oxford and Oxfolk, you will see options to pay a little less or to pay a little more. If it would be helpful to get your ticket a little cheaper, then use the pay a little less option. If you are in a position to pay a bit more, and would like to support Folk Weekend Oxford, then choose the pay a little more option. It is entirely up to you, and there are no questions or checks whatever option you choose.

Are any of your events free?

They certainly are! All local acts, sessions, and Morris dancing is absolutely free. You can see full details of all free events in the programme.

What is your Covid policy?

We want you to be able to book tickets with confidence. If you are unable to attend one of our Folk Weekend promoted events due to Covid, then please get in touch with us, either through the contact form on this website or using and we will be happy to issue a refund.

We advise all our audience members to wear masks and encourage you to use hand sanitiser on arrival.

All stewards and front of house staff will wear masks when in contact with the public.

Our partner organisations may have different policies in place and you should check with them at the time of booking. 

Is anything happening online this year?

Although we are delighted to get back to an in-person festival, we recognise that many people find it very useful to be able to attend events online. We have arranged with our partner Live To Your Living Room to present some of our gigs as hybrid events, with tickets available both for the in-person event and as a livestream. Livestream tickets are available for Granny's Attic at 4pm on Saturday 23rd April, the Fay Hield Trio at 3pm on Sunday 24th April, and Melrose Quartet at 7.30pm on Sunday 24th April. These events are listed in the programme and there are links to the online tickets on each event page. Livestream tickets are also available from the Live To Your Living Room website.
