Celebrating Live Music and Delicious Food in Suffolk

Here’s what we’ve got coming up …

Sunday 23rd February

Join us at Folk at the Froize to welcome Knight and Spiers.

In the summer of 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival had the grand idea of pairing fiddler, Peter Knight and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers (ex-Bellowhead) for a special ‘one off’ concert. It ended up being a genuine festival highlight. Since that moment they’ve continued this very successful partnership to great acclaim.

This event costs £20.00 including a little Froize feast.

+ 5% online booking fee

Sunday 15th March

Join us at Folk at the Froize to welcome the return of Danish duo Andreas Tophöj and Rune Barslund.

Two leading Danish traditional musicians of their generation, specialising in fiddle and accordion but also encompassing viola, whistle and vocals they marry together the sound from their roots in the Jutland peninsula with Irish, Finish and North American influences.

This event costs £20.00 including a Froize feast.

What is Folk at the Froize?

A monthly event which takes place in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, close to the Heritage Coast in a place called Chillesford. David Grimwood, owner of the Froize, wants to bring together two of his passions in one evening: gorgeous music and fabulous food (all locally sourced of course). 

We support the UK music scene, both locally and nationally, and bring you artists that you may or may not have had the opportunity to hear before, that we think are simply wonderful. Don’t be fooled by the name … it’s not just about Folk music. ‘Folk’ covers such a broad spectrum of musical styles these days, and we plan on finding some real gems!


Tickets to our regular monthly events cost £20.00 and are available over the phone on 01394 450282. You can also book online on our Tickets page (with a small booking fee of 5%).

You can also email dine@froize.co.uk if you are unable to reach us by phone. Payment can be taken by card over the phone.

Your ticket price includes a feast of Suffolk Tapas made by David and his wonderful team at the Froize.

Special event prices vary and ticket links have been provided on the Special events page.
