There's a lot going on behind the scenes as the 2017 Broadstairs Folk Week approaches!

At the moment, we are working hard to put together the 2017 Souvenir Programme - 

we're hoping that it will be published by June 16th. It's the complete guide to the festival and you can plan your day almost minute by minute!

Folk Week will also have a new range of merchandise for 2017 - so if you need a t-shirt, bag or new mug -hang on until 11 August!

Thanks to all the sponsors of the festival who are going to support us this year - you can click through to their websites at the bottom of this page.

Look out for some special extra gigs outside of Broadstairs this year:-

The Ramsgate Music Hall is hosting the Folk Week launch party on Sunday 11 June - with band Arlet.  Tickets are £5 - and hopefully if we hit our deadline - the Souvenir Programme will be available to buy - if not - just enjoy the band and a chance to say hello to the Folk Week organisers.
