Warwick Folk Festival will return for its 42nd year in July at a new location.

The event between July 15 and 18 will take place at Castle Park next to Warwick Castle.

Headline acts this year include Festival Patron and renowned multi-instrumentalist Will Pound as well as Show of Hands, The Young’uns, Seth Lakeman, John Spiers and Jon Boden plus Nancy Kerr – the 2015 Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Dick Dixon, festival director, said “We can’t wait to stage our 42nd festival, especially in such a beautiful location with views across the banks of the Avon.

“From feedback we know our festival goers are looking forward to a weekend of superb music, camping, workshops, singing, dancing, sessions and giggles at what is one of the friendliest and established folk festivals around.”

Early bird tickets are on sale until May 31.
