Broadstairs Folk Week

Broadstairs Folk Week is a festival that brings the joy of musis, song and dance to the town and beyond. Its mission statement is to educate and inform the public in all aspects of English and multi-cultural folk music through a programme of workshops, concerts and free entertainment. Over its 43 year history the festival has transformed the lives of many people and touches all sections of society and all age ranges, abilities and ethnic backgrounds.

The festival is not a commercial organisation - it has to fund raise to stay in the town and relies on over 170 volunteers to run the event during the second week of August. For any donor that believes in supporting an event that celebrates the positive effect of music, song and dance and would like to ensure its future and benefit from associated publicity - this is a great opportunity.
