About Us

Festival on the Moor is a non profit organisation managed by a team of enthusiastic volunteers. The committee comprises members of the community experienced in traditional dance, music, song, education, visual art, drama , local produce and folk crafts.

We support and promote local ‘folk’ and feature many artists from all parts of the UK and worldwide in our festivals and concerts.

Our venues include village halls, marquees, artist's studios, pubs,concert halls, village greens and schools.

The Great North Folk Festival is the new name for our May Bank Holiday Weekend. It is our major annual event. We offer a series of smaller events throughout the year, as well as workshops and educational activities.

Our ticket prices are highly competitive allowing access to all and we recommend you check out our Early Bird offers.
