Rochdale Feel Good Festival programme

For our 13th year, due to ongoing refurbishment of Rochdale Town Hall and major improvements works around Rochdale Town Hall Square, our main stage moves to Hopwood Hall College, Rochdale Campus, St Mary's Gate, Rochdale OL12 6RY.

Hopwood Hall College is very close to the town centre and within a short walk of our other festival venues. 

We're adding to the line-up and some details may be subject to change. We'll aim to keep this website up-to-date with the latest information.
