A folk festival is exploring "various possibilities" for a new location after its current venue was put up for sale. 

FolkEast will be taking place for the last time at Glemham Hall, near Woodbridge, between August 16 and August 18 this summer. 

The festival has been held at the hall since it first started in 2012.

However, organisers Becky and John Marshall-Potter said they were investigating "various possibilities" for the future of the festival. 

They said: "It’s been a privilege to stage FolkEast at the great Glemham Hall estate for the last 11 years and to be part of its history.

"We have had many musical stars heading to Suffolk for the festival over the years but perhaps Glemham has been the biggest star of all providing us with a perfect site which has proved part and parcel of the event’s popularity.

"Rest assured FolkEast 2024 will go ahead at Glemham this August and we hope as many people as possible will come to help us celebrate our 12th year at this special place.

"As for the future, we are investigating various possibilities – but there’s no doubt that FolkEast will be continuing so watch this space."

The 500-year-old Glemhall Hall Estate, which belongs to the Cobbold family was put up for sale for £19million in March after the current owner - the son of Major Philip Hope-Cobbold - decided he wanted to move on from the 3,000-acre estate following his father's death in 2020.

The 16th-century property is described on Rightmove as 'one of Suffolk's most notable estates' and boasts 12 main bedrooms, seven main reception rooms, domestic offices, a lodge cottage and parkland, as well as six further cottages.

Car shows and various other events have been hosted at Glemham Hall over the years.
