Cover in place for popular festival

Henshalls have backed a community music festival that brings in visitors from all over the UK and beyond.

We, are providing the insurance cover for this year’s Shrewsbury Folk Festival, which takes place from August 24 to 27.

The event is held on the West Midlands Showground, in Berwick Road, and attracts some of the most established artists from the UK alongside acts celebrating folk music and dance from across the world.

Dave Williams said:

“This is the first year we’ve worked with the folk festival, and it’s a perfect fit for Henshalls as its inclusive, friendly atmosphere makes it suitable for people of all ages.

“One of our key objectives as a company is to support community initiatives and causes that really matter to people, and the folk festival is a perfect example of an event that brings a whole range of music and dance enthusiasts together.”

The festival has four sound stages, a dance tent and specialist venues for the children’s and youth festivals.

Sandra Surtees, festival director, said: “We’re delighted that Henshalls have offered to provide the all-important insurance cover for our event and it’s a contribution that’s very welcome and very much appreciated.

“With so many people on site, it’s vital that we keep everyone safe and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and to have the right insurance in place gives us all complete peace of mind.”

During the four-day event, festival-goers can enjoy music and dance, as well as early morning yoga sessions, workshops, arts and crafts, and there are plenty of activities for children including a circus tent.
