About us Venues / access Ticket info Covid info Volunteer Previous artists
At Manchester Folk Festival all events are individually priced so you can choose exactly what you want to see across the festival weekend.


Many of the events have reserved seating, so book early to secure the best seats.
We promise that there will be no last-minute price-drops, so you can be confident that the price you pay now won’t be reduced later.


All tickets are subject to a 10% booking fee when booking via our festival ticket partner WeGotTickets. Booking fees at individual venues may vary.



There is one ticket price for each show.
Essential Companions discounted tickets are available for every show. They can be be booked at the same time as buying other tickets but these tickets must be booked direct at each venue’s box office.


The recommended lower age for gigs is generally dependent on the individual venue’s own policy.
For example, gigs at The Ritz are 14+, whilst most gigs at HOME are 9+.
Events specifically aimed at younger children or families will be advertised as such.
