Petherton Folk Fest is completely free to all visitors but we could not continue without your kind donations, so please give anything you can afford
Do you take card payments?
Whilst we hope to have a card reader at the information point in 2024 we largely rely on cash donations please. Look out for our lovely volunteers wielding orange collection buckets. Cash points are available outside Holm Restaurant and in the Co-op.
Where is the main information point?
Our information tent is in the main market square opposite the main stage where you can buy programmes for £1, badges and raffle tickets.
Is parking free?
Parking in the village is free – there are 2 hour restriction zones in James St.
South Petherton is quite a small village so we ask you to please park considerately and not block driveways or main routes in and out of the village. In 2024 we hope to have extra parking at Barcroft Hall – short walk to the centre of the village. More info to follow.

In 2024 you will see big recycling bags in the market square. Plus there are recycling boxes at the church. We aim to recycle as much as possible but if you can take any rubbish home with you, we would be very grateful.
