FRI 11 – SUN 13 OCT 2024

Derby Folk Weekend in words, with a ram's head image, and flowers.

We’re back – in “Derby Folk Weekend” format!

We had such a good time last year, that we’re doing it all again… We’ll have concerts in The Old Bell Hotel Derby from Friday evening to Sunday evening, and these will be sold as a small number of “Weekend Tickets”, and then “Individual Concert Tickets” – giving people the opportunity to come to as little, or as much of the festival as they choose. Alongside this will be free music and dance on the streets of the Cathedral Quarter, allowing us to engage with not just those who are in the city for the festival, but those who might otherwise miss all of the fun we’ll be having!

With seven fantastic concerts in The Old Bell Hotel, you can join us for the full weekend, or choose individual concerts to create your own music-filled festival. We’ll also have music and dance on the streets of the Cathedral Quarter.
