"In such uncertain times we all need some much needed light at the end of the tunnel.
We're a very small team here of full time event organisers who have a duty to protect our young company, our growing festival, our loyal followers and of course our artists, caterers, traders, sub contractors, staff and volunteers etc. It's heartbreaking speaking to everyone effected by this current situation but we all need to stay strong and look to the future.
With that in mind, on the 28th of March we decided to reschedule a new date for Beardy Folk Festival 2020 - some six months into the future. Our original venue, contractors and majority of line up are now in place and we're all ready to see you in September! We can only go ahead with YOUR SUPPORT!
Beardy Folk Festival
17th to 20th September 2020
After careful consideration, on March 28th we emailed everyone who had already purchased tickets with the following options.
1. KEEP YOUR TICKETS
This was our preferred option that was taken up by 80% of people. A simple transfer of any June tickets will be automatically made to the new September date.
For those who were not able to make this enforced date change, we offered a refund (less booking fees) if claimed via email by Friday April 24th. Refunds will be sent out by 31st May. We cannot take any new refund claims after 24th April unless the September date does not go ahead.
You are more than welcome to sell or transfer your tickets to someone else at any time. We just need the new ticket holders details emailed to
IN THE EVENT OF BEARDY FOLK FESTIVAL NOT BEING ALLOWED TO GO AHEAD IN SEPTEMBER THEN EVERYONE WITH TICKETS WILL BE OFFERED A DEFERRAL TO NEXT YEARS DATE - 17TH TO 20TH JUNE 2021. AN OPTION OF A REFUND WILL ALSO BE OFFERED , HOWEVER WE WOULD PREFER YOU KEPT YOUR TICKETS PLEASE!
As Beardy Folk Festival is only 3 years old this year we must do everything possible to preserve our company status and secure our future. After making huge strides in our first two years we're looking forward to staging our very special weekend inside the walled garden at Hopton Court for many years to come.
Once again, I must add no one in the world was prepared for this and therefore we must have sympathy and full support for each other through these difficult times.
Hope to see you in September folks!"
Beardy Folk Festival
"Beardy Folk Festival 2019 was incredible and a huge thank you goes out to everyone who was there.
Beardy Folk is a beautifully crafted, Midsummer music weekend boasting a brilliant line up of folk, roots and acoustic music. All set in the beautiful grounds of Hopton Court, amidst stunning South Shropshire countryside. The two music stages, food court, real ale, cider and gin bars are hidden inside a 19th century walled garden.
There's loads to see around the festival site with world class music artists, a small trade village, yoga classes, workshops in singing, morris dancing & spoken word plus heaps of free children's entertainment including circus workshops, woodland activities, crafts, face painting, storytelling & roaming entertainers, yoga, trail runs. and Under 13's go FREE!
There's also up to four nights camping or glamping available with amazing views of rural South Shropshire."
Can't wait to see you there in 2020!"
