Over the past decade Gate to Southwell has established itself as one of the UK’s leading and most innovative folk festivals, whilst also branching out and extending its musical reach beyond its traditional English and Celtic roots.
Since the festival began in 2007, primarily as an English folk music and dance festival, Southwell has built a reputation for seeking out exciting new talent and providing a selection of music that is completely unique to the festival.
Whether it’s country or gypsy jazz, ska or rockabilly, bluegrass or punk, traditional or contemporary, Gate to Southwell promises music of the highest quality.
Kate Rusby, Jon Boden and Spanish folk band BOC are on this year’s line-up, which includes more than 50 live acts. In addition to the music, there will also be Ceilidhs, dance displays, spoken word performances and a variety of workshops for visitors of all ages.
