Once again Grapevine Magazine are proud to be media partners with FolkEast.

We will be be setting out our stall on the village green in Eastfolk among all the other good folk – and by folk we mean: ‘people in general… informal, treated as plural’.   To us, being at FolkEast is about meeting folk, having a chat, writing notes so we don’t forget, writing about our experiences and taking a few pictures to illustrate what we are talking about.

And that is what we do each month when we produce Grapevine Magazine…

Remember the EastFolkGrapeVine17 hashtag!

…which is where last year’s madcap idea of producing the Eastfolk Grapevine came from!   There is so much going on over the three days of FolkEast that we simply cannot be everywhere.  If you would like to help us create the 2017 Eastfolk Grapevine why not pop into the Editor’s Office – you can’t miss it, it will be festooned by Grapevine flags – have a chat, pick up some tips and maybe a pen and become an Eastfolk News Forager for the day – hunter gatherer folk.

Our deadline will be 3:30pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – so you will need to avoid long lunches in The Hop Inn or The Halfway House – unless you are authoring a thesis on the quality of festival ale perhaps!   Once you have hunted and gathered you can bring us back your stories and pictures. (Sunday’s stories will be published online as, sadly, there is no Monday issue of The Eastfolk Grapevine).

Then our illustrious editor will cut and paste and yell and stomp her feet (not quite sure what the stomping has to do with the production process but it happens a lot!) and the Grapevine team will create the day’s news, print it and distribute it the next day – Eastfolk, Eastfolk, read all about it!
