Rochester Sweeps Festival is one of the largest gatherings of Morris sides in the world. The streets, parks, bars and pubs of historic Rochester are filled with the best and quirkiest live folk music and dance over this 3 day spectacular.

The 40th festival was due to take place in 2020. However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic prevented us from celebrating, so we will be making up for it in 2022.

  • Date: Saturday 30 April 2022 to Monday 2 May 2022
  • Location: Rochester Castle Gardens
