Would you like to join in the fun at Tenterden Folk Festival 2016? Morris sides and dance display teams, giants and street entertainers are most welcome!
Tenterden Folk Festival 2016 will take place from Thursday 29th September to Sunday 2nd October. The main days for dancing will still be Saturday and Sunday but there could be some opportunities for dancing on Thursday early evening and on Friday. They are building up the number of sides attending on Sunday and hope to see even more this year. They would like to soon see as many sides on Sunday as are normally present on Saturday so do not worry if you can only go for part of the weekend. They welcome sides that are first time visitors to Tenterden as well those who have supported the festival year after year and some who have been there every year since 1993.
We will still be offering free Weekend Tickets to dance sides and their musicians on a first come first served basis. The Weekend Tickets covers all events on Friday to Sunday but do not include the Thursday evening concert which is a special fund raising event. Due to demand we may have to limit these free tickets.
The camp site will again be available from Thursday to Monday with added toilets and water tank, and is very close to the town centre. Please help us my booking and paying for camping well in advance. This helps us with the administration.
We also expect to be able to continue to offer limited indoor camping to dancers taking part in the Festival. Space is limited so you will need to book well in advance.
We may also be able to offer a limited number of free parking spaces just a short walk out of town.
Up to 60 sides:
We will be limiting the number of Morris sides and dance display teams taking part to 60 so if your side wants to be one of them let us know as soon as possible. If you know of any other sides that you would like us to invite let me know.
