Each year in February, the township of Frances invites everyone to come and celebrate with them at the Frances Folk Gathering.
At this fun festival, there will be heaps of music concerts and lessons as well as dance, art and workshops.
Frances Folk Gathering 2018 Dates, Workshop Program & Schedule
The program will include concerts which will run over the whole weekend in various venues around town. The main music events will commence in the main tent on Friday night and will consist of an opening night concert with a guest artist and local musicians performing.
There will also be competitions open to those in the audience with wind, string and vocal categories and there are open and intermediate competitions. Each competitor gets around 4 minutes to impress the judges and the winners will take home prize-money.
There will also be a number of dancing workshops running throughout the festival. In previous years, they have included celtic dancing as well as art exhibitions where you can view and purchase your favourite piece.
Tickets are not required, although some workshops will require registration in order to confirm interest and you need to register in order to be involved in competitions.
So come on down, bring your band, enter a competition, create a piece of art. There is so much to see and do at Frances Folk Gathering for a fun weekend away!
