7 -14 August 2015 - It's the 50th anniversary! The countdown has begun!

We're looking forward to welcoming old friends and new to celebrate this milestone year.

Festival  and event tickets are on sale now. You can click through on the link on the ribbon header above which will take you through to our online booking kiosk. Or you can download the booking form on the Tickets page or you can give us a call .

Folk Week takes place all over the town of Broadstairs with over 500 events throughout the week. The Festival campsite is situated close to the centre of the town and has lots of entertainment to keep the family happy.

Broadstairs is beautiful - a traditional seaside resort with seven sandy bays and an incredible buzz during the festival.

In the 50th anniversary year, we are celebrating the origins of Broadstairs Folk Wek as a traditional dance Folk Show - and we are inviting you all TO DANCE!

We still have a few places for volunteers for this year's festival. In exchange for a few hours work each day we can offer you a festival ticket, free camping and a chance to enjoy our 50th Anniversary festival.  We still need people to help at the campsite, with collections and at some of our venues. More details are on our workforce page.   Don;t miss out - apply today!
