A fresh approach to a timeless tradition 

FolkEast re-kindles the Eastfolk annual folk moot on the ancient parkland at Glemham Hall, where, for three days of the year, the folk of the East and their families gather for a bit of a to-do.  

Thank you to everyone who joined us at FolkEast 2015 … you made it a memorable and magical weekend.

A special thank you to all the crew, staff, stewards, stall holders and artists who made it all happen.

Stop Press : Registration for 2016 Super Early Bird Tickets has now ended. We have had an overwhelming response to this special offer for 2015 festival attendees, far exceeding our expectations. Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm – we will work our socks off to make sure we bring you the best of folk and more besides, on the 19th, 20th and 21st August 2016.
