The Swanage Folk Festival is a non profit group and when there’s an excess we donate to local good causes.

In 2022 St George’s Pre-school Leader, Sabrina Moss, was delighted when she received an unexpected donation of £250 from Swanage Folk Festival. As she accepted the cheque, Sabrina said: “The money is very welcome as the Pre-school had been unable to do much fundraising over the last couple of years
because of Covid. We are hugely grateful to Swanage Folk Festival for thinking of us!”

Two other local charities are also benefiting from Swanage Folk Festival donations. Willdoes and The Friends of Swanage Hospital are also receiving donations of £250.

Margaret Tyrer, Chair of Swanage Folk Festival said: “We are really pleased to be helping these worthwhile local charities, particularly in this our 30th Anniversary year. We hope to have a bumper Festival in 2022 and have already booked two of the most popular acts on the folk scene, Seth Lakeman and the Oysterband. “If we have a successful Festival, we will have more to give this time next year.”

The Swanage Folk Festival is self-funded and run solely by volunteers. If we manage to create a small surplus we donate it to local good causes. We rely on your support, please volunteer to help and / or donate.
