Welcome to the official website of the Hull Folk and Maritime Festival!

Sadly, planning for our 2020 event has been scuppered by the coronavirus. If the situation improves in the coming months, we hope to either put on a scaled-down festival or some fundraising events for 2021. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for announcements.

HFMF is organised by Folk in Hull, a registered charity that also hosts related events such as the popular maritime concerts, singarounds and sessions and pop-up buskers’ gigs. A number of our members work with schools and other community groups to help keep the folk tradition alive.

Here are a few photos from festivals in previous years.
