Broadstairs Folk Week is in full swing with crowds turning out for yesterday’s (August 12) parade.

The celebration of English and multi-cultural folk music and dance is now in its 52nd year .

There are over 500 separate events crammed into one week.

The 600 seater Concert Marquee in Pierremont park is the festival hub where the headline acts appear but there are also gigs in the town’s pubs and lots of children’s fun and music at the bandstand.
