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!

Celebrate New Year's Eve with Us at the Froize

For the past few years we’ve hosted a New Year’s Eve party, and this year we’re doing it again, only back home in the Froize garden where it all began. We’ve got a wonderful CEILIDH dance planned with John Ward’s ‘Skiphire‘. Much laughter will be had and you get to enjoy an evening with your nearest and dearest, eating food, drinking local ales and hopping about on the dance floor. No dance skills required – just the intention to have some fun!
