Derby Folk Festival is held in the Cathedral Quarter, right in the heart of Derby City Centre.
THE OLD BELL HOTEL
One of the most prestigious coaching inns outside of London, The Old Bell have been great friends to the festival! We take over all of their spaces: The Grand Regency Ballroom – where you’ll find concerts and fringe performances; The Tudor Bar – with a roaring fire and an almost constant music session; The Tavern Bar – with a welcoming atmosphere, great drinks, and impromptu entertainment.
CATHEDRAL QUARTER & ST. PETERS QUARTER
As well as indoor venues, the festival spills out onto the streets, entertaining not just the festival family, but the whole city. We have dance, music and more – and of course, the city centre is full of great shops from high street names, to boutique outlets; or if you fancy a break, some tasty tempting cafe’s and restaurants!
