If you fancy a holiday and a weekend of folk music for a very reasonable price, why not consider The Great British Folk Festival.  Part of the Butlins holiday resort's Big Weekend, this event takes place in the relaxing and very popular Skegness holiday park.  The joy of this kind of event is that you can enjoy a day of live music and then walk to your relaxing accomodation, which is not too far away from the festival venues.

This year includes exclusive performances from some real legends of the folk scene including Fairport Convention and Hothouse Flowers, as well as many other well-known performers and a whole line-up of up-and-coming, modern folk stars on the Introducing Stage.
