Comments Off on Folk Festival

Join us for the best Rockhampton Folk Festival yet !
Friendly atmosphere, lovely countryside venue and top-quality music – this is what people tell us they love about our festival.

We’re really excited that this year our festival has been recognised by Arts Council England.  With their support we have a great line up of top-quality artists including a BBC Young Folk Musician award winner.  Our outreach work in the community grows  too and will touch nearly 1000 people in the days leading up to the festival.   

See you on 17th June !

The festival field will be open from 2.30pm and the main programme starts at 3pm.  
The last act will end around 8.30pm and the festival closes as the sun sets.
Full details of the schedule and running order will be available here soon.

Rockhampton is about 15 miles north of Bristol, easily accessible from the M5 and A38.

Car Parking
There is plenty of well-signposted car parking adjacent to the festival site. 

Cycle here and get a free slice of cake!
Rockhampton is only a couple of miles from Thornbury so if you live nearby why not jump on your bike and cycle up the quiet lanes to get to the festival.   You can park your bike right by the gate and we’ll give you  a free slice of home-made cake to thank you for not bringing your car !

Food and Drink
We support local providers offering top-notch food and drink at reasonable prices.   Local caterer Emma will then be producing a variety of tasty meal options including burgers, salads and delicious vegetarian dishes.  For the kids there will be Hot Dogs with ‘proper’ sausages.  There will also be marvellous samosas from Romy’s Kitchen and local butcher Mike Perry’s famous pork pies.  As the festival opens there will be the renowned home-made cakes and tea from the ladies of the local WI.  

Our licensed bar will be serving beer brewed at our local CAMRA Pub of the Year, The Salutation at Ham, as well as cider and soft drinks.  

Our licensing arrangements do not allow you to bring your own alcohol on to the site.

The festival takes place on a level grass field that is accessible for wheelchair users, although it is a rural location and the field is a bit bumpy in places.

There are a few car parking spaces reserved for those with reduced mobility, please contact us if you’d like to use one.
