Heading to Beverley Folk Festival ?


A local festival with national and international appeal set in a family friendly environment.

For over 30 years Beverley Folk Festival has been producing an annual weekend event to be remembered. Offering the best new performers alongside some of the greatest established acts, it is a unique opportunity to spot tomorrow’s stars and enjoy today’s greats.

Located at Beverley Racecourse and adjacent to the ancient pasture land of Beverley Westwood, where the countryside meets the town, the event is situated in the perfect spot to ensure you have an unforgettable weekend.

Every year a fresh and unique programme is developed which caters for all tastes and ages. This year we have around 110 acts and events – 30% more than ever before so there is something for everyone…

Whilst British Folk music, both traditional and new, remains at the heart of the festival, we also feature Americana, World Music, Blues, some Classic Rock and much more… If the music is good, we will embrace it. We also encompass Comedy, Film, Poetry, Drama, Dance and Morris troupes, Literature and the Spoken Word.

“One of my favourite festivals ever; small enough to have a friendly cosy atmosphere and yet big enough to book the very best in folk and roots music. I have had some of the best musical experiences of my life at Beverley. See you there!”

GoCarShare Booking System

Passengers ‘book’ the journey. Once the driver has accepted, the passenger will be asked to prepay via PayPal.

A week after the journey has been completed we will transfer the money to the driver, minus our fee of 15%, which usually works out as just a couple of pounds. Drivers are welcome to factor this cost into the price they quote to take a passenger.

We don’t enforce the booking system, but it is important to use because:

1.     It prevents people dropping out at the last minute so offers the drivers security.

2.     It helps ensures the safety of the platform; everyone is trackable.

3.     This is our way of funding the development of GoCarShare and ensuring that we are here next year too.

 We hope you value GoCarShare and support us in using the booking system. Please shoot through any questions at hello@gocarshare.com
