Shepley Spring Festival celebrates its 11th anniversary in 2018

May 9, 2018

West Yorkshire’s premiere weekend of traditional music, song and dance is a family friendly festival in the village of Shepley on the edge of the beautiful South Pennines. Smaller than usual this year the festival will take place in St. Paul’s Village Hall in the heart of this rural community. This year’s lineup includes some of their regular local performers who have built up a national and international profile. They are also inviting ‘Estbel’ from Europe. They recently wowed the crowds at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow and are delighted that Shepley will be the first stop on their spring tour of the UK.

Shepley are having Just 2 concerts this year, but each offers a great evening’s entertainment and great value for money. There are 4 groups or artists each night showcasing some of the best folk music around locally and nationally….

Within 10 minutes drive or taxi ride there are numerous campsites and B&B accommodations. This all leaves you free to spend the day as you wish…in a pub session, walking in stunning countryside or relaxing in front of a TV to watch either the Cup Final or the Royal Wedding!!
