As a free festival the Settle Folk Gathering relies on donations, grants, sponsorship to make it happen.

Settle Folk Gathering is a free festival which usually takes place over the first weekend in September, based in the Yorkshire Dales market town of Settle.


Regrettably this year the festival will not take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but we still need your donations to put on a brilliant Gathering in 2021. Usually we raise money through raffles at our regular sessions in the Golden Lion and other fundraising events but of course this year none of that has been possible.


Also, due to funding cutbacks, several of the bodies that have supported us previously are unable to do so, hence we need your help more than ever. 

Any amount you are able to donate will be appreciated and we have some CDs available as an incentive.

Donations of £15 or more get our new CD "The Gathering"; just £10 will get a copy of our first CD and donations of £20+ receive both CDs. Anything over that gets you a warm fuzzy glow inside in the knowledge that you have supported a great free folk festival.


Your donation will go directly towards funding the Gathering. The committee are all volunteers and take no payment for the work they put in.

Thank you for your support and please share amongst all your folky friends.


This project offers rewards in return for your donation.
