Wirral Folk Festival returns to the Whitby Club in Ellesmere Port from 2nd to 5th June 2016.
Now in its twelfth year, this friendly, one-site festival is a real treat for all the family, with its mix of ticketed and free concerts, alongside workshops, a craft fair, stalls, food, drink, and more.
Headlining on Friday evening is folk stalwart Ralph McTell. Well known for his 1974 Ivor Novello Award-winning hit The Streets Of London, Ralph is recognised throughout the folk world for his ongoing contribution to the genre and was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2002 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Saturday afternoon sees Heidi Talbot headlining the main stage, with Oysterband closing out the evening show.
The festival spends Sunday afternoon in the company of Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies, before finishing off on Sunday evening in grand style with Eddi Reader.
Fringe performers across the four days include Graham Bellinger, Dave Russell, Calico, Joe Topping, Granny’s Attic, and many more.
Weekend, afternoon, all day, and evening tickets are available in advance via the festival website. It’s worth noting that day tickets will not be available to buy at the festival site.
