Evaluation partnership with Broadstairs Folk Week (BFW)

Broadstairs Folk Week

BFW is the largest music event in Thanet annually, attracting thousands of people (visitors and locals) to events and generating an estimated £2.4 million (2012 figures) of economic activity in the town. SDHRC is the most important local Arts and Wellbeing research centre in the region and this initiative is a continuation of joint working started in 2018 with the evaluation of volunteer experience.

We are now in a new phase planning work with additional partners (Band in a Weekend, Rosslyn Court, Margate Pride) to capture data on the impact of attendance on audiences at a ‘free’ non-ticketed event and workshops with young people as an ‘audience development’ initiative. This project is subject of a submitted funding application (2022).
