On Sunday evening, BCS were fortunate enough to be invited along to the Folk Week launch night, put on for the sponsors and patrons of Folk Week. We have been sponsoring this fantastic event for over 20 years now, so it was nice to get the chance to mingle with the hard-working organisers and get into the Folk Week Spirit ahead of the actual event!
The night was hosted by Ramsgate Music Hall (Voted NME small venue of the year 2016!) and was brimming with folk spirit! The band Arlet were amazing and got us on our feet! They will be playing at the campsite at Charles Dickens School on the 14th August, so make sure you check them out.
Sunday night was also our first look at this year’s event programme, which is available now. It includes all the artists, venues and times. So, make sure you grab your copy now so you don’t miss out on any of the exciting events that take place this summer!
You can pick up the programme at many places in Broadstairs including: Bandstand Kiosk, Broadstairs Sailing Club, Paydens Chemist, The Elephant in the Room, The Royal Albion Hotel, The Old Curiosity Shop, The Bottleneck and VIC Margate Visitor Information Centre
As anyone who has attended a Folk Week before, the event engulfs the town in the summer and there is hardly a venue that isn’t bursting with song, music and dance. There is something for everyone, so whether you are looking for a family friendly event or a chance to show off your dance moves, Folk Week has something for you!
Folk Week starts on the 11th August and finishes on the 18th August.
