Donate to this charity
Folk Week takes place in the beautiful town of Broadstairs, and is a traditional folk music festival. Over the past 55 years, the festival has become a magnet for people who love authentic music and the opportunity to meet up with an extended family of every generation. Our festival-goers love discovering new bands, seeing old favourites and chancing upon things you would never expect to see at a folk festival! All the major venues for ticketed events are located in the town - it's a great way of getting to know Broadstairs!
Broadstairs Folk Week is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee that depends on a combination of ticket income, public grants, commercial sponsorship and individual donations from the Friends of Folk Week and other fund-raising such as collections on the street to exist and to stay in the town and not become a green-field site festival outside of Broadstairs.
Our aim is to fulfil our Registered Charities mission statement of furthering the education and enjoyment of English and Multi-Cultural music, song and dance, by means of workshops, concerts and dances.
