About Us

Purbeck Valley Folk Festival is a small festival set on a farm on the beautiful Jurassic Coastline. We’re a festival that’s loved by everyone because there’s loads for kids to do, loads for parents and loads for the old folkies!

It features outstanding, original young folk, roots and world music. We always encourage the young up and coming musicians too as well as booking national and international folk acts and a good variety of local music. There’s something for everyone.

Three full days of brilliant music across 4 stages (and Thursday evening), music workshops, sessions, Purbeck Rising (bringing new talent to the our stages), Purbeck Poetry Slam, children’s area (crafts, storytelling, puppet shows, theatre/games, circus skills, clowns), youth music workshops, craft area (including crochet, clay, origami, candle, jewellery and tutu making) , healing area, and a few other new bits and pieces here and there.

What makes us so special? Well, Purbeck Valley Folk Festival is set on a unique and compact farm arena with professional stages in barns. It’s a little farm yard so it doesn’t take you ages to walk from one stage to the other, and it’s always easy to find your friends.

And, we’re in the Purbecks so camping is in an idyllic landscape with beautiful views. Parts of the campsite look right across to Corfe Castle.
