Friarwood Festival is set to return to the Valley Gardens, Pontefract.

Saturday 21st August 2-9pm.

A family friendly music festival that will ensure you have a fantastic day out.

This year we have an awesome line up for the main stage. From the amazing Wakefield gospel choir to our headliners "Soul Attitude".

We are introducing this year a second stage. The acoustic stage with a brilliant and diverse line up of musicians.

There will be lots of fun activities and entertainment for the kids including rides, glitter face painting and crafts.

We have some delicious street food traders attending and several bars serving a wide range of delicious beverages, there will also be some good coffee on the go too. Ensuring you don't go hungry or thirsty through the day.

This event is run purely by volunteers. There is around 12 of us who have been planning the event behind the scenes. We raise money through ticket sales and sponsorship which help us put the event on safely. All money raised goes towards the event and back into the improvements on the valley gardens.

We desperately need more volunteers on the day of the event with things like litter picking, general support and helping on the gates. If you would like to help on the day please get in touch via Facebook or Instagram or email

We would like to thank our sponsors that kindly sponsored the event which didn't go ahead in 2020. The Pomfretian and Pomfret Gallery along with a recent generous donation from the Pomfret woodland community nursery. This support is much appreciated and helps so much towards things like security, first aid and the stage setup. Also many thanks to Mel from Memories by Mel for the logo design.

So get your glitter on and shimmy down to Friarwood Festival on Saturday 21st August!
