Bury St Edmunds’ first folk festival is coming to Nowton Park on Saturday, July 4, showcasing the best of East Anglia’s independent musicians.

Taking place in the park’s walled garden from 10am to 9pm, the event was organised by the Bury Folk Collective and follows its philosophy of ‘folk for all’. The one-day event will see a wide range of genres and performers, aged as young as 12, serving up new songs and old favourites.

The packed programme includes Thy Last Drop (pictured left), Kelly and Woolley, The Blues Twins, Big Marc and many more.
