Dance your wooden clogs off at Broadstairs Folk Week

Broadstairs, Kent

Join in the fun – play the spoons, singalong 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, playford, contra, square and traditional dance.

You can sing along or just sit back and enjoy the fantastic line-up that includes Lau, The Urban Folk Quartet and Tim Edey, plus 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, learn a new skill at a workshop, browse the craft and music fair or watch the family friendly Big Parade - something for the whole family and every generation.
