An annual folk festival is celebrating its 30th year of live music and town traditions.
The Tenterden Folk Festival will take place over four days with a packed programme of local bands, Morris dancers and music workshops.
The festival will include a craft fair with a marquee which will house stalls selling handmade items, artwork, folk CDs and records, musical instruments and artisan produce.
There will also be a real ale and cider bar from Romney Marsh Brewery and stands from local charities such as the RSPB, Kent Wildlife Trust and Woodlands Trust.
The live music schedule includes a mix of indoor and outdoor performances, with an opening concert on Thursday, October 5 at the Tenterden Club from singer-songwriter Pete Coe and four-part vocal harmony group Sound Tradition.
The entertainment then continues into the weekend with both free and ticketed events.
There will be a barn dance with music from Swing the Bridge, sing-along sea shanties in the new show Shantyman, Irish jigs with Ceol Na Mara and returning folk festival favourite Drywood.
The festival will also see up to 50 dance displays take place all over the town, including Morris dancers, European dancers, traditional folk dances and ceilidh.
On Saturday, October 7 at 3pm there will be a town procession featuring many of the festival’s dancers, musicians and street performers.
Visitors can also join in with informal sing-a-rounds, music workshops and talks from some of the festival performers in pubs around the town.
Venues participating in this year’s festival include the Town Hall, St Mildred's Church, The Vine, The Woolpack, the Kent and East Sussex Railway, the William Caxton and Tenterden High Street.
The Recreation Ground, which is where the craft fair will be hosted, will also welcome crowds to enjoy free outdoor music sessions and hot food stalls.
Tenterden Folk Festival takes place from Thursday, October 5 to Sunday, October 8. Ticketed events can be booked online here.
