If you’re not sure where the festival is held you’ll find a useful map of the area on the location page which shows exactly where we are.

Volunteering to become a steward may be the best thing you've done so far this year and will certainly be the most enjoyable! Find out more

At the Festival in 2013 we asked our Pumpers to tell us what they thought about our festival and we’ve listened and acted upon some of the comments they made. The first thing we’ve done is make plans to add another stage in 2014 in a tent that will be larger than the 2013 stage 2 (the hall) and will give us the opportunity to take off the sides to increase capacity when required (rain?). We’re still using the hall for dances, shows and late night extras. This extra capacity will also allow us to put on extra workshops. Plans for these are in hand and we’ll let you know more when we’ve finalised arrangements. Watch this space for other improvements.

Be assured that the small band of volunteers who help to make The Village Pump Folk Festival possible are beavering away behind the scenes to make sure that the festival on 25th to 27th July 2014 is a great weekend for everyone.
