A fresh approach to a timeless tradition - with an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional music where instrument, song, dance, poetry, art & heritage craft skills and  knowledge are shared and collaborations born. FolkEast re-kindles the Eastfolk annual folk moot on the Glemham Hall Estate, where, for three days of the year, the folk of the East and their families gather for a bit of a to-do.


Folk music and art at its best, from near and far, with an added Suffolk twist.


To get you in the swing of things for the festival in August, join us at one of our monthly events.  Look here for details of gigs at Diss Corn Hall, Norwich Arts Centre and Jubilee Hall, Aldeburgh.
