This is the home for FolkStation, the Isle of Wight Folk festivals.
NEWS: we will be running a min-festival at the ASPIRE centre in Ryde (Isle of Wight) on the 3rd and 4th of April. ASPIRE RYDE is a community project in the old Holy Trinity Church building, Dover Street, Ryde Isle of Wight and has some great spaces for clubs, concerts and dances. We'll be filling the details of our event over the next few days so keep looking here or on our facebook page (link in the box on the right of your screen).
We are also running a number of small events as fund-raisers, with the intention of bringing back the main festival. We will add news on the various events here as new things are planned:
- The regular folk club in the bar of the Portland Inn, Gurnard, continues on the first Friday of each month. This is a come-all-ye type of evening free to all. Hopefully we can help with fund raising for the festival.
- Next Portland Inn folk night is Friday 6th February (Portland Inn facebook is: https://www.facebook.com/portland.inn?fref=ts). A special treat will be performances by 'Mr Baker's Dozen' including the Isle of Wight Mumming play! Not to be missed.
- The Island is rich in musical talent and venues where you can see musicians and dancers. For some of the other activities over the coming months see the various links on our "Other Island Events" page.
- You can keep in touch through our Facebook page as well.
