Broadstairs Folk Week

Friday 10th August - Friday 17th August 

Broadstairs Folk Week is a celebration of English and multi-cultural folk music and dance in its 53rd year 

Venues throughout the town burst with music and there are over 500 separate events crammed into one week. The 600 seater Concert Marquee in the town's park is the festival hub where the headline acts appear and it's a great place to meet your friends, have a drink at the bar and chill out. 

There's a full programme of children's events - free family entertainment daily at the Bandstand with Clarence the Dragon and the famous Hooden Horses. 

Looking for child-friendly events, have lots of energy to burn off dancing or singers and musicians seeking out a session – with around 70 events a day, you’ll find something to entertain you from early till late.

Some events are free and some ticketed. Click here for ticketing details
