Folk By The Oak 2019 Review

I was very excited to return to Folk by the Oak, as recommended by Festival Kidz this year.

The fantastic line up coupled with the amazing experience we had had last year drew me in. Before I knew it the kids were making signs and counting down the days. We prepared our picnic, put our frankfurters in a flask with hot water (try it – makes brilliant hot dogs), and headed to Hatfield House.

Folk by the Oak 2017 Review

“Mummy, can we come back here again?” asked my six-year-old as we made our way towards the car park. The end of ‘What a Beautiful Day’ was playing out from the Levellers’ encore on the main stage. To the left of the stage fireworks fizzed and cracked in the night sky.

“Would you like to?” I asked him.

“Oh, yes, I really do. I don’t want to leave.”
