The Westwood Sessions

Beverley Folk Festival



The Westwood Sessions


Friday, Saturday & Sunday in The 1690 Bar

The team are back at the festival running both an open mic and recording studio, exclusively for the under-25s. Providing the unique opportunity to come and perform and record their music, meet like-minded musicians or just chill out. Run by young people, for young people we are proud to offer this successful project once again. The Westwood Sessions is included within all ticket types, including the FESTIVAL VILLAGE TASTER TICKET – and if you wish to buy a fully mastered CD of your work we make a small charge.

Westwood Sessions Live open mic takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Come along and sign up to perform – you will be guaranteed a supportive and warm welcome by Nikki and the team or register your interest in advance by emailing

Funded and supported by Beverley Town Council.

Artists performing at the festival often pop into the sessions, giving young people the chance to meet the professionals.
Last year The Westwood Sessions collaborated with local and well-established Off The Road for the ‘Westwood Sessions Live’ open mic. With a mutual aim to provide platforms for young emerging talents in Hull and East Yorkshire.
