Our grassroots festival is reliant on volunteer support. If you can offer your time and good will to help steward an event during the weekend or help to set-up, distribute flyers or programmes or chip in with any other little job, we would be ever so grateful.

Please email the address below and join our great team or click here for a stewarding form: 2020 Todfolkfest steward application form

We ask stewards for 4 hours volunteering each day in return for your weekend ticket.



Do you live in Tod and have a spare bedroom or a large garden or even a field? Would you be willing to put up some folky types for a night or two? If so Tod Folk Festival wants to hear from you! You don’t have to do the full B&B experience (though you can if you want!) but we need accommodation of all shapes and sizes for this year’s performers and in return can offer you entrance to events. INTERESTED? Contact Nikki on tffaccomm@gmail.com


We’re committed to ensuring a more accessible and enjoyable experience for disabled customers and those with specific requirements or additional needs. We use venues throughout the town, some are more accessible than others and so we have tried to give you as much information as we can on each venue.

Venue access information download

General information –

  • We can offer a free personal assistant ticket for all disabled ticket buyers.
  • We have a multi-faith prayer room available a Central Methodist on Saturday 5th May.
  • Reserved seating can be made available for wheelchair users at all concert venues. Please note this in your ticket purchase or send us an email.
  • No strobe lighting will be used in any performances.

Sadly Todmorden Train station only has level access on platform one. Platform two is only accessible via a flight of stairs and although platform one has level access, it is up a very steep hill with a narrow footpath.

Walking times from the station to many of our venues are listed in this beautiful map.

If you have specific needs not covered here or questions please email Esther on todmordenfolkfestival@gmail.com. We’re always interested in additions and adjustments we can make to increase accessibility so please let us know how we’re doing on the same address.
