Folk by the Oak, the bite sized acoustic music festival, is returning to the leafy grounds of Hatfield Park in Hertfordshire for its fourth year on Sunday 24 July 2011 with another smasher of a line-up.
It’s a relaxed sort of affair; the organisers are happy for you to bring your own food and drink along, and it’s a comfy leafy site with one main stage so you can pick a grassy spot for the day and kick back. The ‘Queen Elizabeth Oak Field’ where it is held is said to be the very place where, sat underneath one of the ancient oaks, Queen Elizabeth I learned of her accession to the throne, so there’s even a bit of history to absorb yourself in. And as well as a stellar line-up there will be all the usual stalls and activities to enjoy between sets, including a craft tent, workshops, children’s activities, storytelling, circus skills, real ale bar, music stalls, recycled gifts and delicious food.
You can buy tickets at the website www.folkbytheoak.com or by calling 01432 355 416. The festival has held last year’s prices until 1 April, so get your tickets early and pay just £31 per adult for this great day out (£33 per adult from 1 April). Family and group discounts are also available.
