Tenterden Folk Festival 2022


Plans are going well for Tenterden Folk Festival 2022 which will run for four days from Thursday 29th September to Sunday 2nd October.


We are working on fundraising and all the logistics that go on behind the scemnes.  The first guests have been booked and announced and more are being added over the spring.  Invitations are being sent out to Morris sides and display teams.  Plans for the free events on the Recreation Ground including the crafts and stalls marquee and free music stage are at an advanced stage.  We already have an exciting selection of stalls booked in ranging from hand made corn dollies, jewelry, woodturning, garden plants, leather work and other artisan crafts to musical instruments and artwork.  More stalls will be added through to late September. 


Venues for this year’s festival will include most, if not all, of our usual venues, but we will again be making more use of the larger halls such as the Tenterden Club and Town Hall as we can allow the audience and artists more space.  We plan to move some events to St Mildred’s Church which is a lovely venue and will allow more space for social distancing if needed.  We are planning to include a mix of events including concerts, barn dance, workshops, meet the guests, sing-a-rounds, music sessions, crafts and stalls, dance displays, procession, etc.  The festival campsite will be in a field near the Town Centre Railway Station.


Tickets are already on sale and will be on sale from the festival box office over the long weekend, where we will be able to accept payment by cash, cheque or card.
