The programme featured the best of UK folk, world, indie, jazz, gospel, family, entertainment, interactive events, ‘recommended by BBC Music Introducing in the West’ performances, Decca Showcases and much, much more…

The new Festival Village was undoubtedly a huge success for all, and we are pleased to have the Free Stage and Imperial Square Village back for 2020.
