Moseley Folk Festival is held in Moseley park which is a gorgeous 11-acre site in the heart of Moseley Village.  A great benefit of its central location is that you have super easy access to shops, restaurants, pubs and cash machines.  It’s only two miles from the centre of Birmingham so it’s very accessible from many locations.  Many of these local pubs will also be hosting artist performances as the festival flows over into the town.

This will be the 13th Moseley Folk Festival, showcasing the best traditional, contemporary and downright experimental folk and acoustic music from both unsigned acts and established artists.  It's a great annual event that continues to benefit the local area as well as raise the profile of Moseley as a highly desirable place to live.
