Donate to help fund our free community events
We are raising funds to assist with the running costs of the festival, which currently sit at around £21,000 a year. As an event run entirely by volunteers with no official funding or grants from local authorities, we rely heavily on the support of sponsorships and internal fundraising to keep the event free for all to attend. Leigh Folk Festival is an annual showcase of music, dance poetry and storytelling providing a completely free family-friendly day out to over 20,000 visitors a year across the 4 days. The event has become an institution, loved by so many and an important date in the Thames Estuary events calendar.
