Ruskin House Summer Festivals
HomeGalleryHow to Find UsAnnual FestivalLinksRegulars
Every summer we hold the annual Folk and Blues Festival in the grounds of Ruskin House. The festival features many of the regular musicians who play at the Sunday evening club. There is a bouncy castle, face painting, barbecue, tea room, side stalls etc. and not to forget, the licensed bars with real ale.

This year's festival will be held on Saturday 27 July 2024.

The festival raises money for the Ruskin House Restoration fund as the three hundred year old building is in need of urgent repairs
