Manchester Folk Festival 2019: Fringe Events

First Street will be brought to life over the Manchester Folk Festival weekend.

On Saturday there’s anarchic outdoor entertainment to delight the whole family, with street theatre companies outside HOME in a colourful celebration of music and togetherness. Don’t miss Ramshacklicious turning up with The Band at the End of the World. They’ll arrive dressed in punk marching band attire, in a cloud of raucous brass heavy music, driving a home-made, flaming battle-church.

On Sunday the pace slows, with free folk and acoustic music in nearby bars and cafes. Treat yourself to brunch or unwind over a pint as you listen to live music from a hand-picked line-up of exceptional artists.

More details will be revealed closer to the time, so be sure to check the Festival website for times and locations.

This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – an urban folk festival. It takes place from 15-20 October 2019, in and around HOME and the city centre. Over the autumn weekend, they present an exhilarating range of events, with the spotlight on contemporary and traditional English folk music.
