Woodford Folk Festival 2023

Music festivals often leave out the littlest members of our families, which has always been a shame. Kids love music and events like the Woodford Folk Festival can create an unforgettable atmosphere.

Woodford Folk Festival has looked to change this as their festival is truly family-friendly.
