What is Folk at the Froize?

Folk at the Froize is 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 are hoping to support the UK music scene, both locally and nationally. We plan on bringing 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 £15.00 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 Louise, David and their wonderful team at the Froize.

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