Volunteers: Folk Ale relies on its volunteers to set up, take down, steward the festival and staff the ticket desk and festival shop. Volunteers will be entitled to a discounted festival pass. If you can help out on the Volunteer Team, please email for an application form.

Camping: For those that wish to camp, a separate camping pass will need to be purchased, either for camper van/caravan or for tents. Camping spaces are limited, especially those suitable for vans, so it is strongly recommended that you book in advance to secure a pitch.

All camping is in a field adjacent to the Kentish Horse pub. Water and toilets are provided. There is no hardstanding, but a few spaces for the vans of disabled visitors are available in the pub car park strictly by prior arrangement only. Contact us on

Parking: Please park cars in the designated festival car park in the campsite field if possible, or next to your tent or caravan.

Friends of the Folk Ale performers: Admission for concert performers is free on the day of performance only. To enjoy the whole festival, please purchase a Friends festival pass by using the promotion code issued by the organisers. Camping NOT included – please purchase a separate camping pass.
