Well that was a wonderful week in every way - fantastic weather (mostly) - enthusiastic festival goers and a buzzy atmosphere every where in Broadstairs.

Everyone has their own favourite part of Folk Week - one of our highlights is the volunteer workforce - we know we go on about them a lot but they are exceptional and give 200% to the festival. We put every challenge in front of them and they cope. Come along and volunteer next year and join a multi-generational team that works hard and plays hard!

Thank you to all our sponsors who help us bring Folk Week to Broadstairs - the combination of volunteers, sponsors, grants and our own phenonemal team of fund-raisers and ticket sales ensures that Folk Week will come back to town. The festival is a not-for-profit registered charity bringing fun, music and a massive economic benefit to the area.  

Please carry on supporting us. See you in 2017  -  11th - 18th August 2017

Without the support of our sponsors - Shepherd Neame, Miles & Barr, Vattenfall Wind Farm, BCS Computer Solutions, Westwood Cross, Stagecoach, Speciality Breads,  the Roger de Haan Charitable Trust, plus small businesses in Broadstairs and grants from Thanet Distrcit Council, Broadstairs & St Peter's Town Council and KCC Arts Investment - Folk Week could not make its home in Broadstairs.  Thank you to all of them.
