"The Gate to Southwell Festival is a little gem" áSpiral Earth 2016

"The range of artists, the programming and the site layout is all thoroughly sorted - it keeps getting better and better"

The stunning Southwell Minster is a splendid cathedral with one of the finest Norman naves in Europe. The Minster hosts music from the festival on Friday afternoon.

While you are at the festival, it is well worth spending time wandering the independent shops and pubs which help make the town so special, and which come alive with dancing and other events while the festival is on.

What people are saying about Gate To Southwell Festival

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended! This was my fourth attendance at this great "little" festival and I will very definitely be back again next year. On this occasion I went with four female friends - all tent camping, our ages ranging from 48 to 70 - and despite the awful weather we had a wonderful time! The description of this as a folk/roots festival doesn't really do it justice: there was shed-loads of all sorts of that kinda good stuff going on all the time in various venues but also some "different" bands - dare I say prog-rock? - which I personally very much enjoyed.... The reasons I've only given four stars are: 1. The fireworks: if this was an HM/HR fest, no prob: the louder the better! But at a folk fest? Terrified our dog and many others. And they were pretty rubbish anyway! 2. True this "new" (second year) venue on the racecourse is far better drained than the previous site and generally held up pretty well - but there were no attempts made to mitigate the worst, muddiest, most slippery and dangerous areas around the loos. But, hey, as I said at the outset, I will 100% definitely be back next year....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Southwell 2016 Our first visit to Southwell, really enjoyed it, (same about the weather!!) There was plenty to do and see, 5 stages, masses of stalls, we were impressed with the number of events, hope to see you all next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Southwell folk festival caravan and camping I attended the festival and met up with friends. Great music and dance events my fourth visit. The common disappointing feature is the muddy exit roads and bogged down vehicles being towed off. The organisers need to look at some temporary roadways that are used at other events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indeed the best event so far Despite the rain. The stewards coped very well and the layout was so much better than last year. All the concerts were great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Southwell Festival This was our second visit, this year we chose to camp which was a challenge given the rain! Again, the music, stalls and overall vibe were great and Southwell is a lovely little town. Lunch and music at the Final Whistle pub was particularly memorable. Our only issue is the same as last year- very poor quality toilets and showers which were gruesome. However, if you discovered the showers in the racecourse building then these were a pleasant surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Southwell Folk Festival - A Wonderful Experience My hubby and sister- in -law accompanied me for their first ever time at the Festival because they like Show of Hands.(I usually go with folk- loving friends! )They absolutely bowled over by the quality and the variety of music on offer, and especially enjoyed the Ukes of Hazard. The Tribute to Bob Dylan bys so many artists was a master stroke, as they loved that to, and it gave them a bit of a break from the full -on stuff. Brilliant!
