Sessions are essential to any good festival! We welcome all musicians and singers to come and join in the sessions around Falkland. The Bruce are happy for sessions all day in the front bar and through the back in the evening. If weather is good, we also hope to have sessions in the beer garden at the back of the Bruce. Impromptu sessions sometimes take place outside if the weather is good!
We have a new session venue! Falkland Library has re-opened as a library and community venue and will be home to a session on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. More details of sessions and session hosts to follow.
Camping is available for a small charge – phone 01337 840450 for details. Full details of events, times and locations, as well as ticket sales, can be found on the festival website
