Folk on the Lawn 2018

The 2018 Folk on the Lawn Festival takes place in Abbey Mill during four days, Thursday 19th July to Sunday 22nd July. Thursday is ticketed although the other days are free but donations would be welcome.

Folk on the Lawn, in various guises as a modest little event has been running for some years now and it is perhaps a little unusual it has no budget whatsoever. It relies on the goodwill of those involved, including artists, staff, the Abbey Mill Centre, the good folk of Tintern and various other benefactors and supporters who lend the festival space, equipment, time and, not least, artistic prowess.

Amazingly, for such a small festival, it has in the past featured a number of international artists and signed bands and it is planned this will continue for this years event. The line up programme is being finalised but the "genre" being encouraged is the rootsy, the homespun, the innovative, the chance taking but within the basic folk/roots/acoustic format.
