2020 tickets now on sale

The 2020 Festival will take place on the 1st– 4th May.

We are delighted to be able to squeeze the full programme of events into the slightly shortened weekend – so expect as brilliant a festival as always!

“We have just got back after a BRILLIANT weekend at Upton, can’t work out why we have never been to your event before, all of those years ‘lost’”

 Just one of the many lovely comments we have had from those who attended our 2019 festival. Thank you all so much for such a positive response.


It is with great sadness that we report the recent death of Mitch Reynolds, fine singer, song writer, whistle, recorder and concertina player. Originally from the North East, she was also known to many people in the Midlands area and well beyond after 40 or so years on the folk scene.

She won the Upton-upon-Severn Folk Festival heat and then went onto get first place in the final at Whitby Festival with her poignant song ‘Gone’.
