Some feedback from 2019
Brilliant weekend thank you. Going home ‘BUZZIN!’ Venue excellent. Variety of acts excellent. Will be back

Thank you to the catering and bar staff for the great grub and friendly service J

Great venue for concerts and camping

All the main concerts have had an excellent balance of acts but Saturday night was exceptional. Two brilliant young acts, one legendary not so young act and the Beatles - how varied could you get – wonderful night

Feedback from 2017

·           Don’t usually attend folk music events, but was impressed today here at Whitby Club. All acts were very good       with good crowd of people.


       Thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon and evening. Will be looking to book for whole weekend next year.

        See you next year  J

First time for us and a long way from home (200 miles from Southampton) Why did we choose Wirral Folk Festival? Incredible value for money. A seriously well-organised, great venue. Good camping, adequate and clean loos and a really full schedule have made this a great weekend. Most other festivals in this price range may have one headline like Fairport...but Blackbeard's Tea Party, While & Matthews, Digance, Cara, & the Houghton Weavers - all of them AND cheap camping - bargain!

Keen to find a Northern festival - Read good reviews re venue, food, organisation. None of the above could have prepared us for just how AMAZING we found the experience. Kept having to pinch myself at just how wonderful every aspect of this weekend was. Bar/kitchen delicious and so helpful. The venue was a tardis and the organisation & control & timing/set up was fab.

First ever visit - totally enjoyed the experience. WELL DONE to the people behind the scenes, on the doors etc. Will be back! Everything is covered, see nowhere to improve. What more can we say!!

Excellent festival. Enjoyed it all

Site well-laid out with lighting at night for campers

Keep it up

Great festival, loved every minute

It's a brilliant festival - keep up the good work

A good, eclectic mix of artistes

Such a range of artistes - almost too much to see and fit in!  Fab!

Great festival. Good mix of acts. Super venue. Well done to everyone. Looking forward to next year already.
Great food and the staff in bars and food service were wonderful.

Well-organised, varied artistes. Very good ladies showers. I enjoyed the Thursday night club with a variety of guests and floor spots.


Access to Stanney Woods for dog walking an excellent idea!

Concert hall great venue

Lovely festival, lovely weather, great acts, great camping.

Nice food and prices.

Possibly the best festival I have been to - well-organised and friendly with great facilities and a wide variety of music to suit all tastes.

Although we are local this is our first visit to the festival. Fantastically organised, excellent range of events, can only congratulate you - Ellesmere Port should be proud! Enjoyed the real ale - thanks for going for more! Venue very good

Loved the diversity of the whole weekend. Everything I wanted to see spaced so I could see them and the inbetween bits enjoyed just as much!

First time here - some great music. Great venue. Nice to have (static) toilets that are clean and topped up with handwash/paper etc

The workshops were well-organised and interesting

Absolutely brilliant - comprehensive, something for everyone.

Enjoyed the festival very much. Venue was excellent and so was the organisation.

Excellent venue - competent and friendly kitchen and bar staff - fantastic.

The morning breakfasts that were available were just the job!
