Glemham Hall is delighted to announce that the FolkEast Festival will return to Glemham Hall for a blissful three days on the weekend of 18th, 19th & 20th August 2017. Set in our ancient parkland at Glemham Hall, the arena will include a main stage and various folk, dance, workshop, tea and “mardling” marquees.
There will be a large variety of food stalls showcasing food from around the world and ‘The Imagined Suffolk Food Village‘ – (foods from local Suffolk producers) brought to you by The Froize. FolkEast will also have its own signature real ale bar with its own mini beer festival, featuring ales and ciders from Suffolk and Norfolk micro breweries. There will be a range of arts and crafts stalls and areas of general wonder!
Another storming musical line-up in 2017 with a broad range of extraordinary artists, many of whom will stay for the whole weekend. They can be found sharing their skills in workshops and will often pop up to play or sing in the beer tent (for a pint) and any other free space that can be found.
Line-up for 2017 to be announced soon…
