The Village Pump Folk Festival takes place at White Horse Country Park, a beautiful country park underneath the Westbury White Horse, the oldest of the Wiltshire horses.
There will be three main stages, a large marquee which plays host to some of the best folk acts working today, a slightly smaller, marguee with a bar situated next to it which will showcase excellent up and coming acts, as well as established acts who suit a more intimate atmosphere. The third is housed within the country club itself and stages workshops, ceilidhs and late night 'extras'.
As well as the main stages there are also a number of smaller stages including The Club Stage, a Session stage which also houses lifestyle events such as Yoga and Nia plus a busy Family Stage featuring the very best in entertainment for smaller pumpers, as well as the usual bars, food and trade stalls.
There is a large flat campsite within easy walking distance of the main festival arena but if you would prefer not to walk, there will be a "land-train" running every day.
