2018 Festival

The 2018 Pig’s Ear Folk Ale festival takes place from Thursday 31st to Sunday 3th June 2018.

We open Thursday evening with a ceilidh in Markbeech Village Hall. The music continues from midday on Friday and runs through to Sunday evening.

As well as the concerts in the main marquee, there will be workshops, singarounds, Morris dancing and crafts, plus as always a chance for you to have a go at maypole dancing. View the detailed programme here.

We have held ticket prices for another year running, and we think it represents fantastic value for the feast of wonderful music Folk Ale serves up. Book your tickets here. 

We rely on our wonderful team of volunteer stewards to help out on site, so if you can help, please contact our volunteer co-ordinator, Barbara Roberts: leysdownlass2012@gmail.com.

The festival is a not-for-profit event run on a shoestring budget. Huge thanks go to the voluntary organising committee who do all the paddling below the water to make the festival run smoothly.
