Bristol Folk Festival returns to the city in 2011 after an absence of more than three decades. The indoor festival will take place in and around the revamped Colston Hall and has a hot property folk performer as its patron, the Mercury Prize nominee Seth Lakeman.
As well as many first class music acts, the festival features Morris dancers, mummers and maypoles, ceilidhs, 'posh loos' and indoor camping!
The festival has named its chosen charity as Cots for Tots, part of Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal. The appeal aims to raise £1 million to provide life-saving equipment for Bristol's St Michael's Hospital neonatal intensive care unit.
