Music and arts workshops will also be running at venues including Gloucester Guildhall, Gloucester Waterways Museum and Gloucestershire Arts & Crafts Centre.

The Gloucester Folk Trail first arrived in the city in 2018.

Festival programmer and artist Danny Hammond said: "We are really looking forward to Gloucester city centre being filled with live folk music, morris dancing, crafts and workshops for the Folk Trail weekend.

"It's fantastic that so many venues are involved in the trail and it will be great to see the city alive with folk and merriment!"
