About this event

FolkEast 2021

20th, 21st & 22nd August

at Glemham Hall, Suffolk

All tickets purchased for the (postponed) 2020 festival through Eventbrite are immediately carried over to 2021 and are valid for 2021.

With the Government's road map being unfurled, we plan to go ahead with FolkEast in August and at a reduced capacity. With this in mind, we will not be opening up ticket sales on Eventbrite until we know we can release more.

For all details on ticket transfers, refunds and purchases please go to the festival website for the latest information.

Concise Eastfolk Dictionary definition:


1 archaic : a group of like minded people from across the generations, who gather together for a three day annual festival of music, arts, crafts, legends, traditions and frivolities on the Glemham Hall estate in Suffolk.

The line-up is hand-picked from first class national, international and local folk artists, the food and ale all locally sourced and fairly priced. With the feel of a large village fete and set amidst a Constable-esque landscape, there is plenty to sing and dance about.
