Allen Valleys Folk Festival
Welcome to the first Allen Valleys Folk Festival which takes place on the first weekend in October this year. It will be a three-day celebration of music, dance and the arts, featuring the best live acts from the North East and further afield. There’ll be a particular focus on emerging young musical talent from the Allen Valleys.
The main music events will be staged at indoor venues in Allendale but there will be lots more to engage with, including guided walks and workshops set in the spectacular landscape of the Allen Valleys.
This festival has been put together by a bunch of enthusiastic volunteers and is supported by the Allendale Lions Club, the North Pennines AONB Partnership and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Please come back regularly for updates on workshops and other activities as they are announced.
