Wimborne Folk Festival revived0
The Wimborne Folk Festival is being revived by a team of locals determined to organise a 2013 festival.
A meeting was held in September to sound out if the goodwill towards the “Folkie” could be turned into a plan to revive the festival run by a new set of volunteers.
Planning a festival for up to 35,000 people in less than nine months would seem a daunting task. But with less than six months to go, a programme is in place and the show is going ahead from 7-9 June.
Matti Raudsepp of East Dorset District Council said the authority was keen to keep the event.
“The festival has become an important part of the Wimborne calendar over the years, and has attracted national and international attention,” he said.
