Folk star Tim Laycock is returning to Tenterden Folk Festival, having last performed in the town in 1992.

Last time, he played alongside Kent’s own Doug Hudson, and the Woodchurch Morris Men.

From their performance, the Tenderden Folk Festival was born in 1993. With the support of Ashford Borough Council, Kent County Council, and the town council, the programme listed 18 names. This included Band of Two, Pete Castle, John Rice and Lucy Castle.

Over the last 25 years, things have changed, but Tim will be back with us to celebrate the 25th Tenterden Folk Festival from October 5 to 8, and the guest list also includes Doug Hudson, Keith Kendrick and Pete Castle while Woodchurch Morris Men will still me heading the procession.

The programme so far includes around 50 acts and there are expected to be up to 50 Morris sides and other folk dance display teams.

There is also a possibility of a few extra events being added on the Monday and a free song and music session in the William Caxton on the Tuesday evening.

The craft fair, music stalls and street stalls on the Saturday and Sunday will also be expanded as will the free music and dance stage events all on the Recreation Ground.

Early bird full weekend tickets and camping passes are already on sale both on line and by post. More details can be found on the festival website
