For 13 consecutive years, Derby has hosted a folk extravaganza with people from all over the country travelling to enjoy the musical delights in the city. Co-produced by Derby LIVE and PR Productions, 2019 saw a change from the usual festival format to the creation of Derby Folk Weekender which took place in venues surrounding the city’s market place. The programme was jam-packed with music, dance acts and fringe activities from Friday to Sunday.
