Description

In 1991 the PTA started the Folk Festival as a fund raiser in the village hall. Since then, the Festival has grown, but still remains true to its roots. It is organised and run by a group of volunteers dedicated to bringing good music into Priddy. It is a “not for profits” organisation with the stated aims of promoting music and arts and improving the environs of Priddy. But it still is a major contributor to the local school respecting its PTA origins. The Festival is now based on and around the historic green in Priddy – the most wonderful setting for a weekend of music.

We are known for our relaxed, friendly atmosphere, so to sit out in the open or under canvas listening to music, chatting with friends, or having a drink with everyone else around you is pretty much normal for us.
