Having moved to Suffolk in 1999 and joined a local Morris side, Paul and Justine Salmon soon realised that most of the festivals they visited were in Cambridgeshire, Essex and Kent. They thought it would be good to have a festival in Suffolk and so in 2004 they arranged a day of Morris dancing in Woodbridge.
It was very successful and so they decided to have a stab at something a bit bigger and so 'The Suffolk Folk Festival' was born. It may seem to be a grand title for, what was then, a fairly small event but they gradually began expanding it.
Now there are many morris sides in attendance every year, along with rapper sword and Appalacian clog groups. There are sessions, concerts, ceilidhs and there has even been beer festival!!!
