Memberships & Sponsorships

Our loyal Folks are very important to us.

Since 1965, our committed supporters have seen the Festival grow into the successful and important event it is today, attracting audiences and media attention from across the globe and selling out for the last 23 years.

A commitment to artist development is at the very heart of the Cambridge Folk Festival. Through dedicated emerging talent spaces such as The Den and The Hub, we provide unique opportunities for young, up and coming artists to gain vital experience, propelling many on to successful careers in music. We aim to be at the forefront of folk, roots and world music programming with as open and inclusive an approach as possible. Providing exciting new music for real music lovers and investing in valuable opportunities for new talent is vital to developing the next generation of headliners.

And, we need your support to continue doing this.

Become a 1965 Club Member and help us deliver on our ambitions for the next 50 years (and beyond). To show our thanks, you can look forward to some unique benefits making your Cambridge Folk Festival experience even more enjoyable! And, for Folks who can make it, these benefits also apply to events across the city in our new winter music festival, City Roots and Beyond the Festival events at Cambridge Corn Exchange.
