The Busy Esplanade

What goes on?

There is a lot to see, hear and do during Folk Week. You can walk anywhere in the town and find an event, stalls, music or even take part in dances and crafts. There are some main areas in the town where the festival is focused...

  • Blackmore Gardens
  • Connaught Gardens
  • The Ham
  • The Esplanade
  • Bulverton Hill (and main campsite)

However there are many little places in and around waiting to be discovered and there's a whole week to find as much as you can!

The Folk Festival 2013 Line Up can be found on the official website here.

Ticket details can be found here.

The Festival Bus Service to and from Bulverton campsite

The festival will be running a regular bus service from the campsite to the Esplanade and back. The timetable and prices will be published shortly before the festival. During the day for shoppers, and in the evening for the start and end of events at Stowford Rise Community Centre, some buses will be routed via Waitrose (Stowford Rise, EX10 9GA).
