The committee of Folk in Hull is very sad to have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Hull Folk and Maritime Festival following the death of HM The Queen on September 8. Our core funders felt that it would be inappropriate to continue with our programme given the period of national mourning, and that the negative perception had we done so could jeopardise future funding. We are devastated and send our sincere apologies to all of our performers and those who were planning to come along.
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.
