Moonbeams Sessions

Moonbeams Sessions at Beverley Folk FestivalMoonbeams Sessions.. hosted by Leila

Saturday 16th June & Sunday 17th June in the Beverley Folk Festival Wold Top Marquee


The Moonbeams Sessions has become one of the most popular features of the festival in recent years, which take place during Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

Hosted by our very own Leila Cooper, the sessions provide a relaxed atmosphere, where you can sit around, either on comfy settees or handy straw bales, whilst some of our finest singers and musicians perform right there in front of you.

Artists such as Chris Helme, Seafret, Merry Hell, Anna Shannon and Moore, Moss & Rutter have appeared as part of these sessions to name but a few.

Leila also hosts the ‘Late Night Festival Club’ which has become one of the festival’s most popular features, with one or two of the main acts popping in to perform alongside other invited guests. If there are any impromptu collaborations between artists during the festival, chances are they will happen here. After a day of music on the main stages, why not relax in the intimate setting of the famous Wold Top Marquee and enjoy some unexpected surprises, whilst sampling some of their fine ales. Billy Bragg, Eddi Reader, Le Vent Du Nord, Ahab and the mighty Peatbog Faeries are just a few of the artists who have braved the late nights to entertain those not so sleepy festival goers. Open to holders of Full Weekend/Full Day Tickets and Wold Top Marquee passes.


Leila looks forward to seeing you there.. do come and say ‘Hello’…
