CELEBRATING 28 YEARS:   1991 - 2019



Well the venue-eating virus is still prevalent here in Otley. The latest patient is the Black Horse Hotel. The Black Horse is an integral part of the Folk Festival and unfortunately closed in March.


We are told that the new proprietors are looking forward to welcoming us back for both folk club and festival, until we know when this might happen, we are organising the festival to suit the venues that we do have available to us. At the moment, we are planning Saturday, concerts at the Labour Rooms, the Woolpack and the Parish Church (headlined by Jim Causley and Phil Beer) plus an American Hoedown at the Methodist Hall organised by one of our local fans.


This years festival will be a smaller affair but thinking of the future, we have already booked the Parish Church for Friday and Saturday in 2020. For further information regarding both club and festival, check the websites or
