The Great North Folk Festival takes place in Botton Village, near Danby. Join us May Bank Holiday Weekend 24th-27th May at one of the friendliest festivals you’ll find.
Botton Village nestles in Danby Dale in the Esk Valley. It’s one of the most magical and stunning places in the North York Moors National Park and is an oasis of calm and beauty.
