The Folk Forest returns for a sixth year to Endcliffe Park as part of Tramlines Festival in Sheffield.

Grants from the Arts Council England and Sheffield Year of Making have enabled The Folk Forest to expand this year.

Headline acts will include Field Music, Marika Hackman, C Duncan, and Teleman, alongside Sheffield favourites The Big Eyes Family Players, and duo Jim Ghedi and Toby Hay plus many more.

The newly-formed Sheffield Brewery Co-Op will be hosting a beer tent, alongside independent food traders from around Sheffield.

The Folk Forest Fair will also be back featuring a second music stage, an extensive arts & craft market, forest school, new games, theatre and workshops offering opportunities for people to ‘have a go’ with materials like wood, metal and leather.
