A fundraiser is now running in a bid to cover costs of the 2023 Broadstairs Folk Festival.
After the challenges of the last couple of years, and the adaptations of the festival format in 2021 and 2022 because of the pandemic, the organisers at Folk Week say they are thrilled to have come through them and are now looking forward to 2023 and beyond.
Folk Week is looking for support for next year’s event in Broadstairs and is looking forward to the 60th anniversary in 2025.
Festival Director Jo Tuffs said: “We have some very loyal supporters of the festival, and they are already donating but we’re hoping that the thousands of people who enjoy the festival as an essential part of their summer will make a pledge. Lots of small donations are really important – so even the price of a pint, a glass of wine or a coffee will make a difference to the campaign.”
If successful, the Crowdfunder gives Folk Week the opportunity to unlock funds from Kent County Council. The target amount is £33031 and will contribute to the massive fund-raising effort required to organise Folk Week.
The campaign is called Broadstairs Folk Week 2023 and Beyond and will run until 20 December 2022.
