Often described as Cheshire’s hidden treasure Nantwich is a picturesque market town steeped in history providing a perfect backdrop for our friendly and intimate festival.
Fluff, Dave and Julie with a small group of dedicated organisers have worked tirelessly to seek out the very best in contemporary acoustic music and dance. Nantwich Folk & Roots
is proud to showcase upcoming talents alongside some of the genre’s best-known performers.
You can enjoy family entertainment, concerts, kid’s stuff, showcase performances, dance demonstrations, free street entertainment, pub gigs, singarounds and sessions over the weekend: all within the town centre itself. With a campsite within walking distance and a wide variety of excellent accommodation within easy reach of the town centre, you don’t have to worry about who’s going to drive!

We guarantee that all Festival performers have met our incredibly high standard of performance and quality.Add to all this:
