Exciting additions to Festival exhibition


As previously announced, Tenterden Folk Festival has joined with Tenterden and District Museum to stage a special exhibition to celebrate 20 years of Tenterden Folk Festival.  

Further exhibits have now been announced. 

  • The Wingham Hooden Horse (circa 1870) loaned by Maidstone Museum
  • Morris kit loaned by Woodchurch Morris Men
  • Ladies kit loaned by Loose Women Morris
  • Historic musical instruments and related items
  • Photos taken at the Festival over the last 20 years by Caroline Scott, Mike Smith and Lewis J Brockway
  • We also aim to include other exciting exhibits which we will announce once they are in place.

The exhibition will run from Easter to October at Tenterden Museum in Station Road, Tenterden TN30 6HN.  

We would still be interested to hear from anyone who has any potential exhibits, old photographs of lMaypole dancers in Kent, local Morris dancers or other folk traditions from previous centuries or information about local folklore, traditions or folk songs and music.
