All the merch for the 2011 festival has now arrived...

We were waiting on the new bags to arrive from India and had an estimated delivery date of August 22nd (which was cutting things a little fine), but they all arrived yesterday and look great!

This year we have

T-shirts (mens, ladies, kids)

Exciting news....

At the festival we're going to be announcing another patron to serve alongside our founder patron and all round good bloke John Jones from Oysterband. However, we're going to keep you guessing about who it is until August bank holiday - but let's just say we are really pleased this person has agreed to join the Shrewsbury Folk Festival family!

Don't forget your kids' wellies....

....not because it might rain (we have put in an order for a full weekend of sun) but because this year, there'll be some workshops in South African gumboot dancing as part of the children's programme. Led by Jenny Read and Appakella, it should be the most fun they can have with their wellies on! They'll also be the chance for them to learn hamboning and Appalachian step dancing. For more about the children's festival and this year's theme of myth and magic have a look at the festival website
