O'Hooley and Tidow

Todmorden Folk Festival is geared up for the weekend with headliners O’Hooley and Tidow performing on Saturday night in a year that has seen the extraordinarily talented duo nominated for ‘Best Duo’ in BBC Radio 2’s Folk Awards amongst other accolades.

There’s stacks of fun for the kids including Pirate shanties, Puppet- making, Circus skills, Bubble Play, ‘Tiny Dancers’ kids disco and much more.

There will be a family-friendly Ceilidh with band, Bedlam at Todmorden Town Hall and a craft fair with lots of local traders and artists selling throughout Saturday.

Tickets are selling well, and organisers are encouraging people not to miss out on what is a fabulous community event.

They promise great acts and entertainment.

Full weekend passes are just £29 for adults and £10 for U 16s.
