Richmond MayFest is a new event for Richmond - a festival focused on historical and traditional music and dancing. It all takes place every early May Bank Holiday weekend

The first Richmond MayFest is on April 30th, May 1st and May 2nd this year. There's a great line up of historical and folk musicians, with everything from medieval to music of the Great War! More information on the What's On page.

Our venues include Richmond Castle, St Mary's Parish Church, The Station, Richmond Town Hall, St Agatha's in Easby - and most importantly the Market Place and the streets around the town centre. 

Richmond MayFest is a community event. Lots of events are totally free, and all ticketed events offer reduced prices for local residents.


And locals are invited to join in the fun - the more the merrier! Please get in touch if you'd like to be involved. For example: 


  • You are in a local choir, music group, dance side or anything like that and want to take part...

  • You are a venue and want to host an event or make some of our musicians or dancers welcome over the weekend...

  • You are a business or individual and can help the event out with sponsorship or in kind

  • You'd like to volunteer as a Steward over the weekend

  • You'd like to be part of organising Richmond MayFest now and in the future. 

On this website, you'll find all the information about whats going on, and how to get tickets to the concerts and ceilidh. You can also follow our Facebook Page to keep up to date with all the latest developments.

And - very important! - you can also donate to help ensure the success and ongoing future of Richmond MayFest.
