36th Shetland Folk Festival dates :-)

We hope you’re still enjoying happy memories from the 35th Shetland Folk Festival.   The committee have just about recovered now and we’re already starting to plan the 36th Festival in 2016 (dates 28th April to 1st May).  What an amazing week we had and our gratitude goes out to SOOOOO many people that make it happen.  As always, the Festival has been a triumph of volunteer effort.  Massive thanks to all the visiting and local musicians, the accommodation hosts, the drivers, the stewards, the raffle and merchandise sellers, the community halls, the sound and lighting engineers, the local press, the staff at Islesburgh, Clickimin, Mareel and Shetland Hotel and of course our brilliant audiences!  Thanks also to our very important business sponsors, grant funders and NB Communication for ongoing support with our online presence and ticketing system.

To help us with our reflecting and to help plan future Festivals, we would be extremely grateful if you could help us by completing a very simple feedback questionnaire. 

You can find the survey at the following link and it should take no longer as 5 minutes to complete.


Our final thanks goes to those nearest and dearest to the 10 committee members who hold the fort at home whilst we essentially abandon ship for a week (and put up with our stress outbursts in the months leading up to the event!)  We love you all and thank you very much.

Cheers for noo and see you in 2016
