Great North Folk Festival is an annual event managed and organised by Festival On The Moor , a non - profit organisation first established in 2002.
The festival is located in the magical Botton Village, a Camphill Community set in the heart of the North York Moors. The village and surrounding area offers the very best in venues and hospitality ensuring a friendly welcome to all.
Originally founded to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the North York Moors National Park, the event it is now a fully independent event attracting many followers from the local community and around the folk world.
We attract local performers from the Yorkshire/ North east region and have welcomed many familiar names including Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick , Woody Mann, Hughie Jones ( The Spinners), Bob Fox, Tom McConville, Maeve McKinnon, and Steve Tilston.
The Great North Folk Festival is outstanding for its beautiful location, its friendly atmosphere and a really amazing mix of music and personalities which we think holds enough variety to please everyone.
Apart from the annual festival, we also encourage and promote folk music in schools and through our local 'Music on the Moor' concerts.
