Artists and events -
For 2017 Thieving Magpie won the Wickham Trophy yet again! They will be with us this year, but have said they will not take part in the dance off this time. We think this is extremely good of them and look forward to seeing them dance as good as ever.
Other dance sides confirmed to date are:
Jockey Morris, Spen Valley Longsword, Persephone, Hadrian Clog and Rhubarb Tarts.
Further details of street entertainment to compliment the folk festival will be announced later on.
