The ninth Allen Valleys Folk Festival takes place 23 - 25 September 2022 in Allendale, Northumberland. It will be a three-day celebration of music, dance and heritage, featuring the best live acts from the North East and beyond.

The festival offers a wide range of musical styles within the folk genre. The main music events are staged at the Village Hall and St Cuthbert’s Church, but there’s lots more to engage with, including free pub gigs, a dance programme, workshops and outdoor activities set in the spectacular landscape of the Allen Valleys. On the Saturday evening, a wooden sculpture of the legendary Allendale Wolf is ceremoniously set alight in the village sguare!  

AVFF is run by Allen Valleys Community Arts, a registered charity. The board of ten trustees is joined by around 20 volunteers over the festival weekend. Inaugural chairman Peter Aldcroft runs the organisation.
