Welcome to Hartlepool Folk Festival 2019

We’re 5!!

How incredible – we’re in our 5th year! It’s been such a joy bringing a bit of magic to Hartlepool each October for the last 4 years, and we have so many lovely things that await you once again this year! From Hannah James’ superb JigDoll Ensemble to our own commissioned show, Your Affectionate Son, plus SO MANY fantastic concerts, workshops, talks and screenings, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

It’s Bagpuss!

We’re bringing you all the music and songs from British TV’s favourite children’s programme, with Sandra Kerr (the original voice of Madeline the Rag Doll) John Faulkner (the original voice of Gabriel the Toad) and Nancy Kerr & James Fagan. It’s a teatime show, under-12s go free, and little ones even get a drink and a chocolate biscuit (though not made from breadcrumbs and butterbeans). Bring the family!
