Free Lowther Pavilion Folk, Roots & Maritime Festival.

Jul 11, 2024

Ladies and Gentlemen….. some very good news indeed. Read on…. you may well, not believe it!

To celebrate the Lowther Pavilion Theatre & Gardens upcoming inaugural Folk, Roots & Maritime Festival, the team are exploring the importance of folk music as a genre and why they’ve decided to keep the festival free. Yes that’s free – as in no money!

For the Lowther Pavilion Theatre & Gardens in Lytham St Annes, folk music has become a big part of their programming, with their bi-monthly Folk Club, which started in 2023, going from strength to strength. Lowther’s has seen artists perform including Jack Rutter, Emily Portman, Malin Lewis, The Brothers Gillespie, Iona Lane and Katie Spencer.

It’s their Folk Club, that’s inspired their latest passion project, Lowther’s Folk, Roots & Maritime Festival in late July. By ensuring they keep the festival free-to-enter, Lowther are able to make this important genre of music accessible to all.

There are hundreds of people who want to experience more live folk music, however, with the cost of living crisis may not have the funds to attend. By making this exciting, new festival free, Lowther are inviting seasoned enthusiasts and soon-to-be fans of the genre to come down and experience the diverse forms of folk and maritime music for nothing.

Lowther’s Folk, Roots & Maritime Festival is taking place in their beautiful gardens, Saturday 27th – Sunday 28th July from 11am.

Attendees to the festival can expect to see two days of exciting performers including Martin Carthy, Harp & A Monkey, Lytham St Annes Shanty Crew, Iona Lane, Katie Spencer, and many, many more.

A programme of workshops will also be available alongside the music.

Lowther’s Folk, Roots & Maritime Festival is supported by Fylde Council and is in partnership with Moorhouses Brewery.

Spiral Earth says, find your road atlas and point your transport towards Lytham St. Annes for what sounds like a ding dong festival.
