Our team of volunteers, hangers-on and ne’er-do-wells here at Deal Folk by the Sea have decided that we will not be running an annual weekend folk festival for the foreseeable future.

We have decided to focus our efforts on smaller scale events which may or may not include singarounds, busking, barn dances, workshops and other nefarious pursuits. Ukuleles may also be involved.


We would like to thank all the people who have contributed to the festival in all its guises over the years and who knows? Maybe one day it will return.

Thanks for supporting us and please keep watching the website for news of our events..
