Get ready to laze away a summer’s day at Folk by the Oak, a family-friend festival held at the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Oak Field at Hatfield House.

The festival takes place on Sunday 16 July 2017 and mixes some of folk music’s finest acts with crafts, games, stalls and tasty food.

The musical action will be split between the festival’s two stages; the Main Stage will bring you award winning musicians, while the smaller Acorn Stage will showcase enthralling new talent.

Family Fun at the Folk by the Oak

The organisers will be making a special effort to help younger Folk by the Oakers enjoy the day just as much as the grown-ups.

Wander around the festival site and you’ll discover a variety of imaginative activities to keep little ones entertained. Highlights include folk dancing sessions, longbow archery, circus skills and traditional fairground rides.

As well as the activities dotted around the site, the Folk by the Oak has a dedicated space featuring a range of family-friendly activities. Join the storyteller beside the old oak tree, visit a face painting or henna artist, create tiny healing gardens or magical fairy doors – there’s going to be lots going on throughout the day to keep little and big kids happy.

Unlike some festivals, the Folk by the Oak actively encourages families to bring along their own picnics. If you fancy something different, there will still be plenty of stalls selling quality food, but the picnic option is ideal for fussy eaters and families on a budget.
