LIVE EVENTS

Live events are starting up again and its so good to be adding events to the Diary. For some venues these will still have Covid safe requirements such as socially distanced seating and mask wearing. Other venues may have no such requirements. Please contact the venue or check their website to find out about any requirements. 

As before the Live Events Diary will contain East Anglian Events

ONLINE EVENTS

via FaceBook, YouTube & Zoom

During the Pandemic, many artistes & folk organisers have found innovative ways of taking their music on-line for virtual Folk Festivals, Front Room Concerts and Sessions. This has been very popular and has also widened accessibility of folk events to those unable to attend live venues. Several Organisations and Individuals are continuing to hold online events for this reason.

The Online Events Diary will contain online events from anywhere.
