This years Beverley Folk Festival saw Kate Rusby, Steeleye Span, and The Lindisfarne Story Band entertain the crowds at Beverley Racecourse. And after the success of this years festival plans for 2017 are already underway with Martin and Eliza Carthy and False Lights already on the bill and more to be announced in the coming weeks, revellers are being given the chance to purchase discounted “Summer Sizzler Tickets” for just £85 each – a saving of £35 off the full price.
Matt Snowden, voluntary festival chairman, explained: “We know the 2016 festival was only a few weeks away, but we’re already working hard to ensure 2017 will be another hit. To date, we can already confirm living folk legend Martin Carthy and his equally talented daughter Eliza Carthy are set to perform, as well as False Lights, one of the hottest folk rock groups on the scene.”
“The Summer Sizzler ticket deal enables you to experience everything the festival has to offer. This year we had over 100 artists and groups performing, from big names like Kate Rusby and Steeleye Span, to some of the best young artists on the festival scene. We want 2017 to be even better, especially as it will take place during Hull’s year as City of Culture – we want to play our part in helping to mark this fantastic opportunity for not just the city, but also Beverley and wider East Riding area.”
More artists for Beverley Folk Festival’s 2017 line-up will be announced over the coming weeks. Beverley Folk Festival takes place from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th June 2017 at Beverley Racecourse for full details and to book tickets visit www.beverleyfestival.com
