  • Wessex Folk Festival

The return of the free Folk Festival over the first weekend in June, and it has been announced that the Wight Hot Pipes will bring a lively finish to Sunday’s music on the stage in Hope Square. With a reputation for energising audiences, the six-piece band from the Isle of Wight uses bagpipes to fuse music from all genres from Celtic to dance and rock and claim to have taken piping “to the next level”.

The 2022 Festival will break with the traditional format to tie in with this year’s Jubilee Bank Holiday celebrations. Pub sessions and workshops will begin on the Friday night (June 3rd) and continue throughout the weekend. Morris dancers will be at sites around the town on the Saturday (June 4th) and on the Quayside on Sunday (June 5th).
