Fast becoming one of the biggest free folk festivals in England, running from the 1st-3rd June, the Wessex folk festival is an opportunity to sit back and relax or get up and join in with a whole host of activities, dances and live music. With over 30 stage performances over the weekend, Weymouth harbour side is the place to be.
