Cleckheaton Folk Festival - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement April 14th 2020 In spite of our optimistic outlook we are sad to report that the 33rd Festival will have to be postponed until next year.. We have thought long and hard before making this decision but in the interests of safety for our Artists, Stewards and all our visitors we feel it is the right thing to do. We have already notified as many as possible before we made this this public. The good news is; We have retained all the artists for a new date of; 2nd, 3rd & 4th July 2021 So please put it in your diaries, on your calendars, in your to-do lists but whatever you do make it a date for us all to meet again in healthier circumstances.. We are very grateful for all the effort you all made for our Crowdfunding Campaign and we plan to ringfence those funds and use them for the parade costs in 2021. We are really looking forward to the day when the folk family can all meet up again and enjoy the music we all love, until then keep yourselves healthy and safe.
