In July, this year's Bridport Folk Festival was a triumph again, entertaining hundreds of visitors and locals alike with more than 60 acts.
Organiser Chris Deacon said "The Bridport Folk Festival started in 2017 as the dream of a few local folk musicians to provide a meaningful festival of all things folk and at the same time to benefit a chosen charity. Since then, each Festival has been so successful that we've been able to donate thousands of pounds to our chosen local causes." Harmony is lucky enough to have been chosen as the Festival's charity this year, and will benefit financially from the event.
The success of the Festival is only possible due to many fundraising events undertaken, and the work of many volunteers who support of the festival. Harmony Trustee Ali Cliffe coordinates that army of volunteers for the festival, which included other Trustees too. She said; "As always we had a great team of volunteers who helped ensure the festival ran smoothly and enjoyed their time being part of the festival. If anyone would like to join the team next year they are welcome to sign up on the Bridport Folk Festival website and come and enjoy the fun”
