The quickest, safest and greenest way to book is online with a card via this link with Wegottickets. 
It's very safe and very simple, register your details once and then you can book for all our concerts in the one place. No envelopes, stamps, emails and trips to the postbox required.  It's the greenest method as you don't even need to print anything out, just give us your name on the door and we can find your booking reference.  Almost zero carbon footprint.  They charge 10% for the convenience but by the time you've added up envelopes, stamps and petrol and your time, there's not much in it.

Buy tickets with WeGotTickets

Alternatively - If you are averse to booking online - there's still the old fashioned method.
Send an email with the number and type of tickets you require. Ticket prices are on the individual gig pages, as are door and start times.

Include your full name and phone number, then follow up with a cheque 
for the total amount made payable to Folk in the Barn and post to
Folk in the Barn .........?..........  concert
I will give you the address to post to in the confirmation email. 

Please include a stamped addressed envelope so I can return the 
tickets to you. 

Or come and find us at the merch desk at any of our other gigs and buy direct - it saves you a bit to do so. and more of the income goes to the promoter and artist. 

We can handle a proportion of the bookings this way, but it really helps us out a lot if you book online

If you pay on the door on the night of the concert there is a slight extra charge, so it pays to book in advance and helps us to know how many people are coming.

Cancellation Policy

For bookings through Folk in the Barn

If for any reason you cannot use the tickets please let us know asap.  The best thing would be if you could try and sell them on yourselves. If this is not possible…  and the concert is sold out, up to one week before the gig we will try and resell the tickets and if successful refund your money less £1 per ticket handling charge (to cover phone call costs etc).  If the concert is not sold out then we're really sorry but we can’t offer a refund.

In the unlikely event that the concert has to be postponed, tickets will either stand for an alternative date, or in the event of complete cancellation then we will refund your money less a £1.50 per booking handling charge.  Any announcements will be made via the Folk in the Barn emailing list so if you’re not a member of that please email us to join for free.
