💿 CDs now available!

In case you didn’t know, we record the concerts at our Festival and our performers generously donate the recordings for use on our fund raising CDs. The proceeds from these CDs are used to help fund next year’s Mitcheldean Festival.

We currently have two CDs available at £5 each, plus £1.50 postage. Wave Over Wave contains performances from the 2016 festival and Hello New Life contains performances from 2017. CDs can be sent by post or collected, post free, from Mitcheldean Folk Club at the White Horse in Mitcheldean on the second Thursday of each month. For more information and to order a copy of either CD (or both) please email concerts2018@mitcheldeanfestival.fod.uk

Come gather round people…

For those seeking a more relaxed alternative to Sunday’s folk walk some of our usual suspects will be hosting a acoustic session in The White Horse from 2pm. Come along to sing a song, play a tune, tell a story or just enjoy the entertainment provided by others.

🚜 One of the best things about having a Festival in Mitcheldean is that the countryside is within walking distance — literally! And what better way to enjoy a summer Sunday than to sing along the Gloucestershire Way?

🍳 First, a cooked breakfast is available at the White Horse in Mitcheldean between 10 am and 12 noon @ £6.95 per head — please call / text Andy on 07772 053778 or e-mail folkwalk@mitcheldeanfestival.fod.uk by SUNDAY 15TH JULY to book your brekkie (veggie option available).

🚶‍♀️ At 12 we will then set off on a circular tour of around seven miles, visiting several establishments with time for refreshments and a few songs. Each stop has its own theme for music and poetry:

  • First Stop will be the Co-op, Mitcheldean to get sandwiches and drinks etc. for lunch under the oak tree or whenever we feel hungry
  • Under our usual oak tree with a view towards the Severn — themes are Animals and Rivers
  • The Yew Tree, Longhope — Faith and the Forest (a drink stop only this year due to the pressure of other bookings at the pub)
  • The Farmer’s Boy, Longhope — Countryside, Farming
  • The White Horse, Mitcheldean — Horses, Colours
  • The Jolter Press, Mitcheldean — CIDER!
  • The Brewery Tap, Mitcheldean — BEER!

🍦 …and the ice creams at the Farmer’s Boy are well worth sampling!

🐕 Dogs are welcome as you can see — if you don’t want the breakfast you can just turn up for 12 at the White Horse, but advance notice of numbers would be helpful (call / text 07772 053778 or e-mail folkwalk@mitcheldeanfestival.fod.uk) — see you there!
