Wimborne Minster Folk Festival 2025

The Wimborne Minster Folk Festival is the largest in Dorset and a town festival like no other!


Having been in place since the early 1980s, it is one of the largest gatherings of dance sides and musicians in the South of England. The whole town comes alive with music and comedy, concerts and ceilidhs, workshops, dance displays, street markets, and family areas.

There are Headline Festival Concerts in the Allendale Centre and the Methodist Church. There is also the popular Microbrewery which is now located at Allendale Car Park. For a second year, there will be a comedy show at the iconic Tivoli Theatre, and this year will feature the legendary Comedy Poet Les Barker and The Polly Morris Band in addition we have a brand new focus on Art with displays throughout Allendale House.

Families will be entertained by Circus Wessex, new shows featuring Puppets in the Allendale Centre, and Mad 4 Animals at the Methodist Church.

The festival boasts 10 stages and 60 dance sides. With hundreds of performances scheduled across the weekend, for all ages it will be hard to know which ones to choose but, whatever you choose, you are bound to have a good time!
