Jim Causley: Festival Patron
Jim Causley
Festival Fringe

This year - weather permitting - we are running a Fringe Event in a garden on the wharf opposite the Falcon Hotel (all day Saturday & Sunday,  &  on Monday morning).  

There you can hear  some booked guests & other fine artists in a relaxed, free, venue.

  You will be able to sit,  perhaps with your coffee,  ice cream or lunch  &  listen to good music & song. 

The list is now closed & a  programme for these 30 or so performers will be published soon.

Please note the fringe is not the same as the open-mic sessions in the church which are ‘come-all-ye’ for anyone who wishes to perform.

Building work in the Falcon seriously affected our ability to plan & prepare our fabulous Music Hall. Sadly there will be no Music Hall in 2017, but we hope it will be back in 2018.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank producers Carol Etherton & Andrew McKay, MCs George Wilson & Ken Hobbs, Andy & Jillie Jackson & all our artists & helpers for their hard work in creating a brilliant event.

In 2017 there will be a  programme as full or fuller than last year, with alternative high quality events on the Saturday night. We'll tell you about it when we can.

The changes give a more practical layout to the lobby and the entrance to the Ball  Room
, which will benefit both the Falcon Hotel and the Festival.

  Bude Folk Festival was founded in 2007. Thank you to Lucy, Kevin and their friends for 7 great festivals.
