Shetland Folk Festival 2015

The Shetland Folk Festival officially runs from Thursday 30th April 2015 to Saturday 3rd May 2015 (update: in 2016 between Thursday 28th April and the Sunday 1st May 2016) and promises to be a superb event with a world-class line up of musicians – both visiting and from the Shetland Islands.

Everyone who knows about the Shetland Folk Festival knows however, that it starts unofficially, on the ferry journey the day before! NorthLink Ferries were delighted to meet the visiting artists in Aberdeen and hope they have a great time in the beautiful Shetland Islands!

From sponsored walks, to abseiling down buildings, the NorthLink Ferries team has done it all in an effort to raise as much money as possible for the organisation. With £7,072.35 now handed over to the charity, The ARCHIE Foundation will be able to continue to provide specialist equipment and staff, create a welcoming hospital environment for families and provide accommodation for parents that need it.
