Birch Hill Charity Folk Festival

This is the 4th Birch Hill Charity Folk Festival in 5 years

(we didn’t manage one in 2014).

It’s a great way to enjoy a good helping of live music

without breaking the bank

and raise money for a good cause

at the same time.

Bracknell Folk Club used to run Bracknell Folk Festival, a thriving event somewhere back in the last century. As the club grows again, we aim to grow the festival to raise even more for charities and entertain more people with bigger names into the bargain.

None of it would be possible without tons of help, which has included:-

Dan Kemp

Double Jeopardy

Doug Brown & Pam Hibbert

Galley Beggar

Garry Smith
