2022's T-shirt competition winner!

Thursday 7 July 2022

We’re delighted to announce that the winner of our 2022 T-shirt competition is Alexandra Bailey! We loved Alexandra’s beautiful, well thought-out entry (above), and we can’t wait to see the finished T-shirts, which will be available to buy at this year’s festival!

Here’s what Alexandra had to say about her design:

I've been going to the Folk Festival for years and included elements in my design that I associate with the festival. I can't wait for this year's one!

  • The fox, for the beautiful wicker fox statue of course!
  • The duck pond - no visit to the folk festival is complete without a trip there!
  • Four suns and four moons to represent the four days the festival is held over
  • Guitar - the instrument of choice for this year's headliners The Gypsy Kings and Seasick Steve
  • Ripples in the pond radiate the musical atmosphere of the event - all notes, clefts, and musical symbols
  • The 'welcome back' as a friendly nod to having people back at Cherry Hinton Hall for the first time in a couple of years
  • Small trees and tents represent the campsite, music tents and surrounding nature.
  • and last but not least, a hidden duck!

This year’s runner up is Hannah Baptiste, a year 11 student at Hockerill Anglo-European College, who has won a pair of Folk Festival day tickets! Check out her design below:

With so many fantastic designs sent in to us, it was a very tough decision, so a huge thanks to everyone who entered, you creative lot!

Don’t forget to visit our official merchandise stall at the festival, where you can get your hands on one of our new T-shirts, plus hoodies, hats, posters, picks and more.
