Featuring the very best folk and acoustic music from around the country – and closer to home!
This year’s Hartlepool Folk Festival will be based at the Maritime Experience in Hartlepool, now part of the National Museum of the Royal Navy. This lovely site is home to an historic 18th century-themed quay and HMS Trincomalee, the oldest floating warship in the world. From atmospheric concerts overlooking the ship, to below-decks music sessions and shanty singing on the quayside, the Maritime Experience provides a fantastic new site for imaginative concerts, workshops, sessions, singarounds and special events. Mainstage concerts take place at the Town Hall Theatre, a 10 minute walk away.
