Folk On The Lawn

"innovative folk for innovative folk"

The day is finally here! So here are some top tips…

FOTL 2015 will get underway at around 7pm this evening.  The weather looks great so we’ll undoubtedly be outside on the River Stage!

To prepare you for the weekend here are a few tips…

1. Bring cash!  There is no cashpoint in Tintern, and in general it’s not possible to pay by card.  As well as donations which will all go towards paying the artists, there’ll be a stall selling FOTL t-shirts and artists’ CDs and merchandise, not to mention food stalls and – last but certainly not least – the bar!  If you forget to get cash before you leave, the nearest cashpoint is in Chepstow.

2. Please park away from the festival site.  The car park at the Abbey Mill is incredibly small and simply won’t cater for everyone who wants to visit the festival.  There is a large car park located a few minutes walk away – take the turning opposite the Abbey Mill (past the Royal George hotel) and follow the signs.  This will allow our less mobile visitors to use the few spaces on site.

3. Explore and enjoy!  We have three stages at FOTL offering a wide range of music, poetry and more, so there is something to suit everyone – and the children are catered for too with their own activity tent.  And if you still want more once things draw to a close on Saturday night head down the road to the Rose & Crown for the fringe session – not to be missed!
