The event kicks off at Nowton Park nursery on July 2.

Steve Martin, one of the organisers, said: “Bury’s first ever Folk Festival last summer was so successful that public requests and even demands meant that we had to start working on the 2016 Bury Folk Festival only a matter of weeks after we’d finished clearing the site of the first one.

“Building on last year’s experience the Bury Folk Collective founders have put together a great line-up of local and regional folk music talent for this year.

“We still need some stewards to help with putting up and taking down gazebos, fixing on wrist bands, manning the merchandise stalls and selling tickets at the entrance.”
