The Folk Forest 2021 (10 Year Anniversary Special)

July 17 @ 12:00 pm - July 18 @ 8:00 pm

It is with deep regret that we have reached the difficult decision to postpone The Folk Forest 2020 festival until 2021.

Whilst we were very excited about welcoming you to our special 10 year anniversary celebrations, given the unprecedented situation surrounding the Covid-19 epidemic and the considerable uncertainty over the coming months we feel postponing the event is the right decision. Your well-being, along with that of our staff, partners and contributors is paramount, and this decision has been made with everyone’s best interests in mind.

This has been an extremely difficult decision to come to terms with, given all the work that has gone into planning this year’s event and the opportunity to come together and celebrate arts and culture in Sheffield. With that in mind, we have been working hard to secure new dates for the festival and reschedule the 10 year celebrations.


The dates for the Folk Forest 2021 will be 17-18th July, so please get them in the diary! We are exceptionally grateful for the way our partners, artists and contributors have pulled together to help maintain the vast majority of the amazing programme we had lined up for you, and we are looking forward to building on this further in the coming months.
Further announcements will be published on our

website:  https://www.thefolkforest.net/,  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheFolkForest Twitter: https://twitter.com/thefolkforest


All tickets already purchased will automatically be valid for the 2021 festival, and do not require further action. However, if you would prefer your money back now for whatever reason you are of course eligible for a refund. Requests for refunds need to be made by 30th June 2020. Please see our FAQ section for full details: https://thefolkforest.net/information/


It is already apparent that the impact to the events sector will be one of the greatest for a generation and we all need to pull together to weather the storm and make sure as many festivals, venues and artists are able to continue to trade and make their vital contribution to society. Your support in attending our 2021 festival, keeping your tickets valid and when the time is right helping spread the word about The Folk Forest will be invaluable in the coming months. You can help, and we will need your help.

Until we meet again in the forest, our best wishes are with you all.
