Taking place in Grove, near Wantage in rural Oxfordshire, WHFF is a small, intimate, relaxed festival where there is an emphasis on creating an inclusive atmosphere and encouraging everyone to play a part in the weekend’s events. There is plenty of opportunity to sing, play or tell a story with singarounds and music sessions every day, sometimes set around a particular theme.
Festival guests are encouraged to be part of the general goings-on over the weekend and will host workshops, mini-concerts or give special presentations as well as performing in the Saturday evening concert.
Local dance sides add colour and variety on the Saturday, dancing out or running workshops during the day, finishing up at the Bell PH in Grove. Then on Saturday evening in The Old Mill Hall, Grove, WHFF joins forces with White Horse Ceilidhs for a stomping English Ceilidh. Energetic and lively, the White Horse Ceilidhs have gained a reputation for lively, energetic dances which guarantee to have everyone dancing their socks off!!!
