August events: Broadstairs Folk Week

Broadstairs, Kent

Join in the fun – play the spoons, sing along with the many bands, shake a clog or head along to the Hobby Horse Club.

At this event in August, you can dance your socks off morning, noon and night with ceilidhs, samba, Russian and zulu traditional dance.

Or just sit back and sing along to the fantastic music line-up that includes The Poozies, The Willows, Tim Edey and many more. 

Around the town, there’s morris dancing, free family Hobby Horse club at the bandstand with Clarence the Dragon and the Hooden Horses and plenty of workshops for learning new skills. You can also browse the craft and music fair and, on the Saturday, catch the spectacular Big Parade - a family-friendly procession of music, colour and magic.
