FolkEastFolkEast music festival 15, 16, 17 August 2014. 

Suffolk's very own folk music festival, FolkEast, returns to Glemham Hall this August, and the best way to get there is by train. The festival attracted more than 10,000 people to the rural location between Wickham Market and Saxmundham last year. This year the festival promises to be even bigger. Around 20 bands are confirmed for what is billed as "an eclectic mix of folk, roots, world, and acoustic music as well as the music you know and love." 

Shuttle Bus from the Rail Stationtrain+bus=music

To make it easy to get to and from the festival the organisers will be providing a shuttle bus from Wickham Market Rail Station (at Campsea Ashe) to Glemham Hall which is only 10 minutes from the station.

The East Suffolk LinesWhether you are commuting to the capital, or planning a day out in Suffolk, a great way to make the trip is by train. With hourly services to and from Felixstowe everyday, hourly Ipswich - Lowestoft services Monday to Saturday (every-other-hour Sundays), and fast connections to London using modern air conditioned trains, the East Suffolk Line makes it easy to avoid the busy A12.

Catch a show in London, or explore the quaint towns and villages along the Suffolk Coast. Bring along your bicycle and see some of the most picturesque places in East Anglia. There are many things to see and do, and the East Suffolk Line makes it easy to get there.

A great way to explore the East Suffolk Line, and the towns and villages it passes through, is by using an Anglia Plus ticket. It allows you to get on and off the train as many times as you like on a single day; three day tickets are also available. Advanced reservations are recommended if you plan to bring your bicycle. Travel on this particular ticket from 8:45am onwards weekdays, or anytime at the weekends and during bank holidays.
