Settle Folk Gathering 2020 is CANCELLED

We regret to announce that, reluctantly, we have decided to cancel the Settle Folk Gathering for 2020. This is as a result of uncertainty regarding social distancing and availability of venues.

We intend to run the Folk Gathering in 2021 and will provide more information as this becomes available.

In the meantime, if you would like to support this free festival, you can do so by making a donation at

We would like to extend our thanks to the local organisations which have kindly sponsored last year’s event.

This project was part funded by Stories in Stone, a scheme of conservation and community projects concentrated on the Ingleborough area. The scheme was developed by the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership, led by Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
