Bude & Stratton Folk Festival

26-29 May 2017


Bude and Stratton Folk Festival is a friendly mix of folk events held annually on the late May Bank Holiday weekend in this beautiful area of North Cornwall. It features music, song, dance, and storytelling, and there is a small programme of children’s events. The programme is published in April.

Our friends at the Falcon Hotel have a special festival Beer-Fest that adds carefully curated speciality ales to the musical menu.

The guest list includes Ange Hardy, Lukas Drinkwater, Jim Causley, Si Barron, Reg Meuross, Geoff Lakeman, Sam Kelly Trio, The Dambuskers, Thorn and Roses, Hamish Currie, Moe Keast.

Season tickets are £50, early bookers and students get reduced prices, children are free.

Festival information is at

What’s it all about?

The Festival welcomes numerous talented guest performers, many internationally known, who give concerts and appear in other events during the festival. Local dance sides perform, and we are delighted to welcome children from local schools, who give a dance display on Saturday morning. There are concerts, sing-arounds, sessions, a folk club, a barn dance, open-mics, fringe events, storytelling, a folk service and workshops.

What happens?

The Falcon Hotel hosts several concerts including the ‘Cream of Cornwall and Devon’ showcase of local talent, the barn dance and workshops. The Falcon and other local venues welcome participants in impromptu music sessions

The Rugby Club is the home for singers. There are sing-arounds, a Folk Club evening, short concerts, late night sings, workshops and informal gatherings.

Children's events start with instruction in school leading to demonstration dances on Bark House Green. They are provided at no cost to schools or parents.

St Michael’s Church has wonderful acoustics and hosts daily open-mic sessions. This is a great place to listen, for free, to the great talent the festival attracts and have a coffee and home-made cake or a light-bite lunch in support of church funds. There is a non-denominational folk service on Sunday.

This friendly Festival has always had a “joining-in” ethos. We are grateful to the core of professional artists who do just that outside of their formal events. But we encourage everyone’s participation. There are workshops for musicians and singers of all abilities and a special concert on Monday showcases some of these.

In other local venues free Fringe Events feature selected quality performers.

How can you take part?

The Festival offers weekend tickets and individual event tickets at very fair prices. Book on the website  or call 07736 374003. Camping is available at the Rugby Club for weekend season ticket holders. Local campsites and accommodation can be found through Bude TIC.

We are most grateful to our Festival Patron Jim Causley and all our guest performers, for the continuing support of Bude’s Town and County Councillors and Festival Friends. Thanks are also due to the Committee and staff of Bude Rugby Club and to the new owners of the Falcon Hotel for their commitment and encouragement.

Leopallooza Festival 2017




Leopallooza Festival in North Cornwall


The Wyldes Week St Mary, near Bude, North Cornwall

The Leopallooza Festival is now one of the highlights of the Cornish summer and celebrates its 10th edition in 2017.

The festival has grown form a small party with a burning car to a popular, well-regarded new music festival (with a burning car) with 6 stages.

The festival remains faithful to its original principles 'to create and throw the greatest house party…in a field'

As well as home-grown talent, Leopallooza attracts bands and musicians from around the world, some who fly in specifically to play this one gig,

such is the growing, credible reputation of Leopallooza amongst burgeoning artists and reputable agents.

Leopallooza is a festival, held since 2006, which happens at Week St Mary, near Bude, in North Cornwall. This event is billed as a place where live music, tents, alcohol, good good people, sausages, sun, mud, burning cars, appreciation of the north Cornish nation, cider, neon, power riffs, straw, rain, rumours, fields and portable loos collide. The  centrepiece is a car, which is loaded with wood and set on fire. It has had different guises. It's been a Zebra and the General Lee. The festival site is built using reclaimed materials, wherever possible, making the handcrafted stages/bar/eatery unique and a welcome alternative to Formica and steel. A crew of friends dedicated to the local music scene help build and maintain the festival site year round. They design the leaflets, organise the marketing and sell the tickets. They even work on the night and forego the partying (at least until later on.)





Polzeath Beer Festival 2017!


At The Point - Polzeath

It all kicks off on Friday 5pm with an evening of live music, BBQ, hog roast, great ales and a golf roll up competition open to all who would like to participate. Saturday kicks off with an early shotgun golf competition (fully booked) – followed by an afternoon of children’s entertainment, more great food and live music.
Some of the popular bands from last year have confirmed they are returning and of course there will be some great new bands to entertain you.
Come and enjoy some summer sunshine, family entertainment and a great weekend.
