Folk East Festival 2016
A fresh approach to a timeless tradition - with an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional music where instrument, song, dance, poetry, art & heritage craft skills and knowledge are shared and collaborations born. FolkEast re-kindles the Eastfolk annual folk moot on the Glemham Hall Estate, where, for three days of the year, the folk of the East and their families gather for a bit of a to-do.
Snape Holiday Cottages offer an ideal base for a Short Breaks in Suffolk, Weekend Breaks Suffolk or an alternative to a Bed and Breakfast Suffolk while visiting FolkEast in Suffolk. We offer lovely cottages in the Countryside and near the Suffolk Coast.
We have added even more artists to our 2016 guest list… check it out…
