ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Lake District Folk Weekend takes place in the picturesque Lakeland village of Staveley, near Kendal.
Staveley is perfectly situated; being only 10 minutes from the West Coast Mainline on the 'Lakes Line' from Oxenholme Lake District to Windermere, it is also served by frequent buses (Lancaster to Keswick) and boasts a variety of independent shops and cafes.
Staveley is the perfect base for walking and cycling, with both long and short routes for all abilities starting from the village. We are at the start of the beautiful Kentmere Valley - one of the quietest valleys in the District.
Go to ACCOMMODATION and VILLAGE & TRAVEL pages for further information about Staveley.
Ticketed concerts are held Friday and Saturday . The Village Hall hosts a concert on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon and a ceilidh on Saturday evening. The Roundhouse, an intimate 50 seater venue, will host concerts on Friday and Saturday evenings.
These are supplemented by free events in the village pub garden and cafes. Free workshops, singarounds and sessions in the brewery, pavilion and Eagle & Child Garden which encourage all visitors to get involved.
Morris sides will perform in the Mill Yard.
