Broadstairs Folk Week

Folk Week 2016

2017 Line-up details coming soon.

Folk Music By The Sea  - 11th to 18th August


The 2017 festival is well on its way and the exciting eclectic line-up for next year is being created.

Just so you don't forget about that amazing week in's an informal and leisurely journey through Folk Week in our podcast. It doesn't cover every aspect of Folk Week - that would probably last a week in itself - but we hope it gives a flavour of the week and how much fun it is!

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.
