Rickmansworth Folk Festival

2022 - Saturday 16th July
1200 - 1730

Rickmansworth Folk Festival Update:

Rather unfortunately the license to sell alcohol at this event, has been revoked… however, Wishful Drinking on the High Street, who were to provide the bar, are not only just a short walk away, but are offering growlers of ale at a 15% for festival attendees.   Here is a note from Steve H at Wishful Drinking:

Ricky Folk Festival – Massive 15% Growler Discounts This Weekend

As you may have heard we were planning a Pop Up bar to support the fun and frolics at the Rickmansworth Folk Festival this Saturday 16th July from 12:00 to 5.30pm.

However due to some “administrative issues” between us and Three Rivers Council our TENs temporary licence was not granted. This is exceedingly disappointing not only for us, Rickmansworth Town Team, the performers and all those supporting the Festival but also for any of you who were looking forward to a wonderful Wishful bar offering draft craft and cask ale and a wide range of traditional ciders whilst enjoying some gentle vibes in the Bury.

But perhaps not all is lost……….We still have all of those wonderful beers and ciders in stock and ready to be enjoyed at the Folk Festival where now of course there will be no bar. 

And then we got thinking……..So that the whole event can still be enjoyed to the maximum and for Festival goers to remain fully refreshed we will be offering a massive 15% off four pint disposable Growlers purchased in store up until 5.30pm on Saturday to anyone who says “Frankly, I fancy a frolic at the Folk Festival”!!!

Let’s support Rickmansworths first Folk Festival and have some fun in the sun as the music plays………..


The Morris Sides:

Will be dancing on the High Street from 11am (temperature allowing!), and will then move onto Bury Lane – outside the Conservative Club.

Attending the event:

If you can use public transport, cycle, walk to attend the event, that would be great!  However, if you are unable to do so, there are plenty of car parks around Rickmansworth Town Centre, however there will be a charge for staying.  The Bury Gardens are pedestrian access only.  You can find all you need on the map below.

Want to attend?

This year the event has changed a bit – the stage is in The Bury Gardens, and the Morris sides will be dancing on the High Street and outside the Conservative Club.  They need a flat surface to dance on which is why they cannot dance in The Bury Gardens.
