One of the longest established folk festivals (held each year since 1965) takes place 2-5 August at Cherry Hinton Hall, fifteen minutes away from Cambridge’s historic city centre.

As usual, there is an eclectic range of music on offer, with a mix of traditional folk artists and the more contemporary. The main stages this year include First Aid Kit, John Prine, Rosanne Cash,  Patti Smith and Janis Ian.

A dedicated stage – The Den – provides a platform for emerging artists under 30 years old whilst ‘The Hub’ is another performance area with access to workshops.

This family-friendly event is perfect for all ages and with various ticket types available.

Cambridge Folk Festival takes place between 2-5 August at Cherry Hinton Hall.
