Festival Fringe

The Fringe gives opportunities for up & coming artists seeking a performance platform outside the session, singaround, or come-all-ye environment.

If you want to join the fringe or just
find out more, please download an application form.
  The closing date for applications is now past. Prospective artists may still get in touch,  but no guarantees are offered.

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.

Right now we're working hard on the next festival 26-29 May 2017. But it is clear that important building work in the Falcon Hotel early next year will seriously affect our ability to plan & prepare for 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 & Andrew Etherton, 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.

In the long term the changes will give a more practical layout to the lobby and the entrances to the Carriage Room and Efford Room
, which will benefit both the Falcon Hotel and the Folk Festival.

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