Be part of the Future of Folk

Could you be part of the Future of Folk?

Music, song, dance, storytelling, customs and traditions: The traditional folk arts have been a huge part of the rich and diverse cultural landscape of the UK for hundreds of years. We’re here to make sure that they don’t die out.

But we need your help, and that's why we've launched the Future of Folk fund.

We passionately believe that the folk arts are central to the cultural life of the UK and that they need to be available to everyone.   Because we’re a charity, we rely on our generous supporters to help us achieve our vision of keeping the folk arts flourishing for future generations.

There’s never been a better time to support us. Thanks to Arts Council England Catalyst Funding, every £1 you donate will be doubled at no extra cost to you. This is a once in a generation opportunity to invest in the Future of Folk!

Your gift will mean that more people can join in the folk arts, more folk teachers will be supported, and more artists will receive help at crucial stages in their careers.  

If you would like to be part of the Future of Folk, you can join today.
