Workshops and Competitions

Festival Workshops, sessions & meets

Thank you to all who entered our 2020 Band Competition and Youth Folk Challenge. A wonderful standard and variety of talent among the entrants. The competition is now closed. As the 2020 festival has been postponed to 2021, we will rollover submitted entries until then for judging. We will look to reopen the Band Competition and Youth Folk Challenge for any additional entries in early 2021. 

Congratulations to the following who were competition winners at our 2019 festival: Tell Tale Tusk who won our Band Competition; Abhainn, Jasmine Canham & Oliver Cross who were winners of our Youth Folk Challenge; 10 year old Niamh who won our ‘Name the Festival Dog’ competition with her suggestion of Banjo; Andy Taylor and Rita Jennings who submitted the winning entries below in our Festival Photo Competition.
