2020 Worrall Festival cancelled

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel this year’s Worrall Festival and Gala. It was perhaps inevitable with everything going on at the minute but it still didn’t make the decision any easier.

We’ll be back bigger and better in 2021. We’ll keep you posted on here about any other activities throughout the year.

Thanks for your support and understanding.

Stay safe

In light of the government’s announcement on 20 March 2020 that all bars, cafes, restaurants and other leisure businesses must close, the Memorial Hall will be closed for events from today.

We will contact those with bookings to discuss their options including rescheduling their event or receiving a full refund.

We would continue to encourage everyone to follow the government’s advice in respect of hygiene, self isolation and social distancing to try and limit the spread of the virus and reduce pressure on the NHS.

Headliner Announcement

We’re very excited to announce that the James Taplin Band will be headlining the festival this year.

Having made a name for himself in South Yorkshire’s bars and clubs as one of the regions most beloved singer-songwriters, James Taplin, ‘The Voice’ of bluesy-roots and acoustic rock & soul, is paving the way for a promising future ahead. James will be joined by his band which includes the equally talented Michael Holmes on Harmonica. These guys are not to be missed!

Music Announcement: Dogwood Rose

Opening this years festival are Dogwood Rose – a Sheffield based Americana trio featuring Judy Clifford on vocals, Mike Richards on guitar / vocals and Kiri Smith on fiddle. Judy and Michael have been playing and singing together for several years on the Sheffield folk circuit and beyond – Judy’s voice is frequently compared to Joan Baez: powerful, soulful singing. Kiri joined them, adding fiddle accompaniment and a 3rd voice for the strong harmonies, a varied set and a lot of fun!

Dogwood Rose last played Worrall Festival in 2015 and we’re looking forward to welcoming them back!
