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 took 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. In 2022 the Pigs Ear Folk Ale will be returning in a brand new green field site and new dates, the 14th to the 17th July.
