We're back, ready and raring for year No.5!!
It is our honour and pleasure to host yet again another weekend of Traditional Irish Music for the UK’s Second City. With the line up now pretty much confirmed and tickets on sale, we’re busy working behind the scenes curating a festival to which we hope will exceed all of your expectations. It promises to be a top quality of Traditional Irish music which we hope to share with as many people as possible in November.
As with every year, from all of us here at the Trip to Birmingham TradFest, we would like to thank each and every person who supports us any way each year! For now, spread the word and get yourselves booked up… See you in November!
