With around 35 regional and national performers, plus a bar, some great food options and guaranteed good weather (well, guaranteed Cornish weather, anyway), the Cornwall Folk Festival Fringe Stage is the place to hang out during the day.

You'll find it in the car park at the back of Wadebridge Wines, on Eddystone Road, just around the corner from the bridge and Shanty St. In fact, everything for the folk festival is close together.

Actually, no need to worry about the weather -- this year we've invested in some cover, so the whole "fringe tent" is pretty much a tent!

We run the Fringe on Friday late afternoon starting at around 4.30pm, and then Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11.30, with events finishing around 7pm, in time for you to get to any evening concerts in the town hall, or any of the sessions around town.

You are welcome to come and go as you please.

On Sunday morning there will be a 'folk mass', for people of all faiths and no faith, giving us the blessing for our final two day's roster of fabulous musicians.



Wadebridge Town Hall, Monday 27th August

“Marvailh”, in Breton, means “fantasy tale”. Five talented musicians from Rennes have come together to write their own story. Through their passion of Breton music, these five young men from different musical backgrounds (saxophone, accordion, guitar, double bass and drums) have let themselves be carried by the influences of jazz and pop in their everyday life. Deeply rooted in traditional music, always attentive to dancers, Marvailh uses all its energy to produce a velvety, enthralling and powerful sound which is reminiscent of a jazz quintet.

With Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys

No guarantee can be given that any events will take place, or any artists will perform at a particular time, or at all. We will, however, make every effort to carry out the programme as advertised.
