Founded by music lovers Paul and Carolyn Graham to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the building Holy Trinity Church, Guildford, the festival has grown to become a significant festival on the folk scene. Regularly featuring both local artists, in collaboration with Guildford's Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM), and nationally renowned acts, there is always something for everyone at the festival. The festival now takes place just off Guildford's cobbled High Street at Holy Trinity Church and features two stages, situated inside the church and in the adjacent Royal Oak pub which is free to the public. For the first time in 2015, the festival teamed up with the the Star Inn to put on a late night show after the main festival closed. For 2019 a new Friday night venue will be added in co-ordination with well established local music venue the Boileroom. Every year, the festival supports a local charity, all proceeds from the BBQ are given to the charity.
The full list of performers and stages is as follows:
