ABOUT US

ABOUT
MOIRA FURNACE FOLK FESTIVAL

We’re a small friendly festival featuring a mix of nationally known, local and upcoming artists who perform on two stages in seated marquees – so everyone is under cover for concerts.

We have a program of free workshops on Saturday and Sunday mornings for weekend ticket-holders, which take place in various locations around the site, There is a Ceilidh on Saturday night in the nearby Miner’s Welfare building.

Singarounds and sessions take place in the bar marquee, various other marquees on the main site and the campsite and at the two local pubs. Morris and Appalachian dance teams perform outside during the weekend.

Car parking

Car parking is free for festival ticket holders. Camping is available for caravans, motorhomes and tents – see the Camping page for details

Dog Friendly – We are a dog friendly festival, but if your dog causes nuisance to others you will be asked to take it outside.

For those with limited mobility, the whole site is accessible for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.  There are no steps which can’t be avoided.  This is a country park site, so there are paths to almost all areas.  We have limited parking for blue badge holders on the main festival site close to the stages and have an allocated camping area for pre-booked campers with mobility issues.
