The Annual Wessex Folk Festival

Every June (normally the first weekend after the May Whitsun bank holiday weekend) Hope Square plays host to many traditional and modern folk bands and individuals playing to a large and enthusiastic audience on the main stage of the event. The quayside too has acts either alfresco or tucked in to the corners of pubs doing their thing. A great time was had by all and its free! The event takes up Saturday and Sunday and this year 2014 had to be the best year yet. From all at the Red Lion we would like to thank all who supported the event and here’s to next year!
