2020 Line-up includes Seasick Steve, Richard Thompson and Kate Rusby.
Folk by the Oak is just outside London, but feels a million miles away. This one day festival is surrounded by the leafy green parkland of Hatfield House, where you will be immersed in music, history, ancient oaks, bunting, fun and laughter.
From the intimacy of their Acorn Stage to the open air festival buzz of their Main Stage, Folk by the Oak bring you award winning musicians and inspiring new talent in one memorable day.
The carefully curated stages are complemented by lovingly hand-picked caterers and craftspeople. For younger 'Folk by the Oakers' they have a world of creative workshops to discover onsite. The dedicated family friendly area is in sight and sound of the Main Stage so the grown ups don't have to miss out on the action while keeping the kids entertained. You are even invited to bring your own food and drink into the auditorium so keeping the family fed doesn't need to cost a fortune.
