Tickets

Some parts of the festival are free to enjoy (Dance sides, the procession, the craft fair and some activities around town). You need to buy a ticket for other parts of the Festival (mainly workshops, ceilidh and evening concerts).

Ticket Prices

  • Concerts: Each concert is priced separately (see the programme), although the best way to enjoy the Swanage Folk Festival is to buy a weekend ticket. A weekend ticket costs £75 per person and allows you into all the paid festival events.
  • Workshops cost £3 each (cash on the door, unless you have a weekend ticket).
  • Children's tickets (6-16) are available at a discounted price, children must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Other concessions (such as performers and stewards) are available on the day, if there's space.
  • All tickets are sold according to the Festival's Terms & Conditions and Ticket Policy

Two ways to purchase tickets.

  1. In advance: We recommend you get your tickets in advance, online (via Eventbrite who provide an online ticket purchase service). There is a £1 booking fee per ticket for online purchases. These tickets will be emailed to you, you must bring your tickets to the Festival to allow you entry to the concert. If you don’t bring your ticket, we can’t let you in.
  2. On the day: You may also purchase tickets on the day at the information tent, or on entry to workshops (cash only).
