A True Community Event

The benefits of a strong Friends’ organisation is more than financial – it sends a message to all of our funders that this festival is deeply cared about by the local community, as well as by the thousands of people who come every year from around the world.

According To An Economic Benefit Survey Carried Out In 2012 By Kent County Council, Broadstairs Folk Week Inputs £2.3 Million Pounds Into The Local Economy.

 The festival attracts thousands of visitors who spend, spend, spend in the restaurants, pubs and shops.

The festival brings a fantastic line-up of musicians, singers, dancers to the town – you just can’t miss the vibrant atmosphere and party spirit throughout the whole week.

Part of the programme is free – to the audience.
