Tickets are now on sale for our first ever Charity Dinner & Auction!

We’re delighted to announce details of our first ever charity dinner and auction, to raise funds to keep the festival free for all to attend! The night will be held in the ballroom of the Park Inn Hotel, Southend-on-Sea on Friday 01 March 2019 with tickets including:

– Drinks reception
– Three-course meal
– 3 Live acts TBA
– Charity auction featuring unique experiences and money can’t buy items
– Very special guest speaker TBA


VERY limited early bird tickets are now on sale at £30 per person



All funds raised from the night will contribute towards the annual running costs of the festival. 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 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.

More announcements will be made in the coming weeks.

We look forward to welcoming you for an exciting evening!

We would like to give a MASSIVE thank you to Park Inn by Raddison for their support on this event and helping to make the night possible.

If you would like to purchase a whole table (10,12 or 14 tickets) then please email
