BunkFest is a small but growing end-of–summer folk music festival, which takes place in Wallingford and combines a broad range of folk music, dance displays, a beer festival and the local (Bunk) steam railway.
The festival is intended to appeal to a wide audience and should be thought of as a music festival with broad family appeal. The main stage features light music and dancing during the day and lively folk, folk-rock and world music acts in the evening. Other venues round the town feature a wide variety of acts ranging from quiet, contemplative folk artists and singer-songwriters to raucous rock bands.
The festival attracts between thirty and fifty dance sides. The dance programme varies from year to year, and has included, Cotswold and Border Morris, Appalachian and Eastern European forms, as well as traditional Irish, Scottish and Welsh forms.
Mooring in Wallingford during Bunkfest can be difficult so the club will be cruising to moorings at Abingdon Lock and taking the bus to Wallingford.
