Folk Festival in Markbeech, Kent

Join us for the best small festival around!

“Ale” is a term used in past times by Kentish folk to describe a community celebration and that’s what Folk Ale is – a chance for musicians and fans of acoustic music to get together, sing, play, and listen to great music against a backdrop of beautiful Kent countryside overlooking Ashdown Forest.

Dates for Folk Ale 2020 are Thursday 28th – Sunday 31st May. See 2020 Festival for more details.

The Pig’s Ear Folk Ale is organised and run entirely by volunteers, and all the proceeds from ticket sales go to cover the costs of putting on the event.  If you would like to join the team, please go to the Members page for information on how you can get involved.
