The free Folk festival will see an outstanding line up play and dance across two music stages on 30 June from 11am until 9pm.

There will be performances from Morris dancers, featuring styles from across the UK including Cotswold, Ireland and Dorset, plus Bulgarian folk dancing.

At the Appalachian dance stage, located outside Quay Amusements, there will be the chance to enjoy some of the UK’s finest step dancing originating from the mountain music of the USA. For families, there will be the opportunity take part in a Ceilidh with Threepenny Bit or a Longsword workshop in the early afternoon with Anonymous Morris.

As well as the outdoor stages, the live music sessions will also take place at venues around Poole Quay including The Lord Nelson, Quayside Emporium, The Angel and The Rope & Anchor.

The Folk on the Quay festival is part of Poole’s Wave 105 Summertime in the South events programme.
