Discover Colour, Creativity and Curiosities!

Craft Tents at Folk by the Oak our one day family friendly summer festival.

Our stallholders add colour, buzz and creativity to our festival site. We have carefully chosen craftspeople that are passionate about their craft, activity or artwork; people who care about each stitch, brushstroke, twisted willow whip, wood-shaving, light footed dance move, eloquent tale, threaded bead and creak of their longbow. We hope you thoroughly enjoy being surrounded by this colourful tapestry of handcrafted ‘goings on’.

Out and About

Today’s music will flow from the Main Stage across to the Acorn Stage and somewhere in between your eye might be caught by elaborate Handmade Hats, bestselling folk CDs and Music from Talking Elephant, colourful Hand Printed and Handmade Clothing, folklore inspired Cards, T-shirts, Calendars and Books, eye catching Crystals and Candles, fragrant and healing Aromatherapy products, inspiring Recycled and Fairtrade Gifts as well as a mixture of unique and sparkling Jewellery. After a leisurely browse don’t forget to treat yourself to a relaxing massage in our Massage Yurt!
