Folk Festival starts next Thursday in Burnham Deepdale

Deepdale Festival 2023 kicks off next Thursday, with a gathering of incredible folk music talent coming together for four days.

Yet again Chris Haycock, the festival director, has put together an amazing programme for this small but perfectly formed music festival on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast.

The Festival takes place at Deepdale Camping & Rooms and Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale and will see more than 40 acts perform across three stages from Thursday evening to Sunday evening. Local artists have the chance to share stages with nationally and internationally acclaimed artists.
