Bill's Bar @ Woodford Folk Festival

Woodford Folk Festival

BILL’S BAR

The closest that we’ll ever get to having a ‘backstage’ bar, Bill’s Bar occupies a tucked away corner of the site, but explodes with activity first thing at the blink of your bleary eye – from the morning yuk it up sessions, to special intimate sessions with a plethora of artists who’ve wandered in from across the programme. A fine place for a drink, eat and catch up with new and old friends, over entertainment. Each afternoon is punctuated with new discoveries at Rob Longstaff’s UpFront Club Open Stage.

Several organisers affirmed that it was the first event at a national level to allow all the relevant stakeholders to come together at once.
