Imagine...

Imagine... a weekend spent with a group of like-minded people!
Imagine... a festival with no booked guests!
Imagine... no concerts!
Imagine... few, if any, musical instruments!
Imagine... no dancing!
Imagine... good beer and cider!
Imagine... a mediaeval banquet included in the cost of the weekend!

Add to all of this

Good company and the clear, pure singing of the human voice in unison, solo and in harmony!

Then you have imagined... The Wail.

Join In

Come and join in the singing with some of the finest traditional singers, all hand picked from folk clubs and festivals around the country, some well-known, some not heard of, but all of a high standard. A harvest of song complemented by good company, good food and drink.

Apart from the regular song sessions, some of the highlights of the weekend are the Mediaeval Banquet, the Cream Tea Concert and the Themed Session.

Everything on one site: move from sing to sing. Campsite, food tent and shower all within easy reach. Bed & Breakfast accommodation nearby.
