Birmingham Conservatoire Folk Ensemble
They couldn’t make it to Leek last year and the dreaded Covid pandemic put paid to the whole of the Festival in 2020 and 2021. That means you haven’t been able to to see this fabulous bunch of more than 50 – yes, more than 50 – young musicians in the town since May 2019! But they’re back, bigger and better than before, playing a bewildering range of music on an even more bewildering range of instruments. Led by real-life legend Joe Broughton, the Brimingham Conservatoire Folk Ensemble promises to be a Leek Arts Festival spectacular.
Tickets: £15 from the venue or online
