Welcome to the home page of the Sedgefield Folk Festival 2018.

Also a number of Festival Fundraisers and charity events are organised throughout the year. 
Details here.

You can see reports on last year's festival and also news of this year's festival on our Facebook page:      


From its modest beginning within a single venue in September 2006, the festival has gradually expanded to cater for the tastes and interests of travelling folk music enthusiasts and local residents alike. Much media interest has been directed at the world spoon playing championships which the festival hosted each year. However owing to the recent passing of our great friend and world champion Bert Draycott, that competition will be replaced by a "Tribute to Bert" - details to follow.

 The festival operates within the Ceddesfeld Community Association and a specific, dedicated committee work hard to organise a full programme of events that will bring visitors into this delightful medieval County Durham village. 

 One of our main objectives, being a small Festival, is to ensure that all visitors have an event to attend, be it concert, singaround, music session, workshop or dance display.
 In recent years concerts have been headlined by such artists as Vin Garbutt, Billy Mitchell, Bernard Wrigley, the late John Wright, the Mighty Doonans, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan, Kieran Goss and the Acoustic Strawbs.

This medieval village has a good range of pubs, shops and eating establishments to cater for the weekend visitor. There is also a pleasant caravan & camping site on the edge of the village. More details here.
