Promoting the businesses and talent in East Anglia is at the heart of FolkEast. The infrastructure for the festival is all sourced locally, where possible, and we have a top team of sound engineers, lighting and stage technicians who make sure that everything sounds, looks and is of the best quality.WE hold a Silver Carbon Charter in recognition of our carbon reduction measures by sourcing locally  Silver Case Studies 


The SUNSET STAGE is provided by local company Luminaire Extraordinaire and nestles perfectly in the natural amphitheatre formed by the slope of the land. When the sunshines and the skies are clear, there is no better place to be on site. When the sun goes down, the Sunset Stage comes into its own…




The Moot Hall , formerly known as the Big Broad Roots Main stage , is now sailing under its own steam!  A ” gathering” place for those who want to listen to  music in a seated venue.




Broad Roots was conceived in 2011 by John and Lynne Ward with the aim of celebrating and promoting folk and roots music to the furthest fringe of East Anglia. The Broad Roots Stage at FolkEast offers an array of talent from the local and regional area alongside those from further afield.



The SoapBox Stage is run by Creative Producer Amy Wragg, an independent Music & Spoken Word promoter based in the East of England. Her passion for the local scene brings an eclectic mix of new and established artists to FolkEast in a unique venue in the woods, accessible only through a magical willow tunnel and powered by the amazing Solar Double Decker Bus.  Get on the SoapBox


THE SANCTUARY STAGE at The Church of St Andrew

This year, The Church of St Andrew comes into its own as a fully programmed  venue of acoustic music where you can  escape the buzz of the main festival site to  listen to some magnificent choirs and take part in song , harmony and choral workshops . Please note that you must have a ticket for performances up at the Church as there is limited capacity. These are FREE from the Information Tent on site and available from 10 am every morning.



We have a dedicated Dance tent with workshops and dances throughout the day and late into the night.




THE VILLAGE HALL  is at at the top of the Bernard Hill in the FOODEAST Food Village. Here you can  enjoy delicious local food , great music and banter.





There is also an outdoor platform on which the Morris Teams perform and several small stages and areas for impromptu and scheduled sessions and workshops in and around the site.
