See You Next Year!

A festival of folk's finest acts gathered in beautiful leafy parkland for one uplifting summer day of music

Thank you for joining us!

We were beyond thrilled to be back in the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Oak Field with live music from incredible artists and our much-loved and much-missed audience!


Thank you to everyone who supported us through 2020, worked so hard to make this year's festival happen, and came together to create the perfect day of sublime music and festival fun. 


Being back together with our Folk by the Oak family made it all worthwhile! 

Our 2021 'Line-up of Headliners'

We were over the moon that so many of our 2020 line-up were able to join us this year, in what for many of them was their first festival, even their first live performance, since 2019!

We are so thankful we were finally able to bring you such an amazing array of talented artists. Particular thanks goes to Jim Moray, our festival patron, and Jack Rutter for stepping in at short notice with brilliant sets, replacing The Young'uns and Sam Sweeney who were unable to join us.

In addition to this 'line-up of headliners' we were also delighted to play host to the London Youth Folk Ensemble who performed wonderful acoustic sets to the delight of our audience!
