• Stages & Venues


Promoting the businesses and talent in East Anglia is at the heart of FolkEast. The infrastructure for the festival is all sourced locally, where possible, and we have a top team of sound engineers, lighting and stage technicians who make sure that everything sounds, looks and is of the best quality. In 2014 we were awarded a Silver Carbon Charter in recognition of our carbon reduction measures by sourcing locally  Silver Case Studies 

 SUNSET STAGE

 

The SUNSET STAGE is provided by local company Luminaire Extraordinaire and nestles perfectly in the natural amphitheatre formed by the slope of the land. When the sun shines and the skies are clear, there is no better place to be on site. When the sun goes down, the Sunset Stage comes into its own…

 

BROAD ROOTS 

 

Broad Roots was conceived in 2011 by John and Lynne Ward with the aim of celebrating and promoting folk and roots music to the furthest fringe of East Anglia. The Broad Roots Stage at FolkEast offers an array of talent from the local and regional area alongside those from further afield. In 2014 the Broad Roots was floored and now plays host to the ceilidhs as well as concerts.

 

BROAD ROOTS CLUB 

 

The Broad Roots Club Stage provides a smaller, more intimate venue so you can get up close and personal!

(PS the Broad Roots crew have renamed it the Broad Bean tent … goodness knows why … )

 

 

GET ON THE SOAPBOX STAGE

The SoapBox Stage is run by Creative Producer Amy Wragg, an independent Music & Spoken Word promoter based in the East of England. Her passion for the local scene brings an eclectic mix of new and established artists to FolkEast in a unique venue in the woods, accessible only through a magical willow tunnel and powered by the amazing Solar Double Decker Bus.  Get on the SoapBox

 

 

CHURCH OF ST ANDREW, LITTLE GLEMHAM

“Amongst the tree tops ahead of me a tower appeared like a secret given up, hidden by a cottage and the unresting castles of the elms. This was St. Andrew.” Simon Knott 2012  A short stroll away from the main site, the delightful Church of St Andrew, Little Glemham provides a quiet and serene setting for a series of intimate recitals and performances.

 

THE MORRIS STAGE , COBBOLD ARMS and more .

There is also an outdoor platform on which the Morris Teams perform and several small stages and areas for impromptu and scheduled sessions and workshops in and around the site.

“Good organisation, interesting selection of bands, types of music and settings for concerts.”  FolkEast Survey feedback
