Folk Festival in West Kent

Pig’s Ear Folk Ale

We’re going on-line!

Well, it looks like we’re not going to be able to gather in person any time soon, so rather than hang around waiting for Covid-19 to be shown the door, we’ve decided to take Folk Ale on-line.

The Virtual Folk Ale will take place on Saturday 5th June, and will be facilitated by our new Folk Ale partners, Powder Mill Productions.

Details to follow.

We aim to be back in the real world in 2022!

About Folk Ale

“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.

The Pig’s Ear Folk Ale was founded in 2003 by family folk group Pig’s Ear – Grant, Keith, Sue and Lyndsey Rule – and for many years was run by the Rule family with a number of other loyal volunteers. It has taken place every year on the weekend following the late Spring Bank Holiday, except for 2020 when it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Pig’s Ear Folk Ale is now run as a membership organisation. Please go to the Members page for information on how you can get involved.
