We are celebrating Folk Ale weekend with a Day of Folk, broadcast live from a studio in Margate before a small studio audience. If you would like to join us, we have three viewing purchase levels for you to choose from:

£15 – Advance subscribe to and pay just £15 for the live event plus watch the footage back after the event. Subscribe at

£25 – Pay a bit more and support Folk Ale. Pay £25 to get access to the live event plus be able to watch the footage back after the event. Note: If by the start of the event you have not subscribed this will be the only option available. Supporter option:

£30 – Gets you an exclusive ticket to be part of the live studio recording and also gives you automatic subscription to watch the video on demand stream. Live audience tickets must be booked in advance. Book audience tickets at

Please note: 50% of the artists will be broadcasting from the studio. The rest will be recorded at home and will appear on screen at the live audience event.

All the proceeds from the ticket sales go towards paying the artists and technicians working to bring you a taste of Folk Ale.

If you are able to help us out by contributing a bit more towards securing the future of Folk Ale, you can access our Just Giving page here:

We all know it’s been tough times for performing musicians, and the Folk Ale organisers considered it the right thing to do to pay our headline acts the same as they would be getting to play a live concert.

However, Folk Ale itself has been hit by the great COVID pause button as well, and we will not have the opportunities for revenue generation that a real live festival affords. So anything you can manage to contribute to the coffers will be very gratefully received.

Thanks very much for your support, and we look forward to a great day on 5th June – but especially to the time when we can all get together out in the sunshine again!
