Around Kent Folk (AKF) is the independent folk magazine for Kent, Surrey, Sussex and beyond and is published six times a year.  


AKF issues 1 to 84 were edited by Kathy and Bob Drage.  From issue 85 AKF is being edited by Alan Castle and printed by Andy Wood.  We are continuing the magazine with the help of a few other dedicated supporters.  AKF is published by Tenterden Folk Festival, registered charity No 1038663, promoting folk song, music, dance, crafts and traditions. Around 700 copies of AKF are distributed to folk clubs, venues, subcribers and others.  From issue 86 we started to included a full colour cover and at least three pages of colour adverts.  We are also including a page of "News from Sussex" compiled by Vic Smith and "Scene and Heard" from Bob Kenward.
