Heading to Folk By The Oak?
A festival of folk's finest acts gathered in beautiful leafy parkland for one uplifting summer day of music!
Folk by the Oak is just outside London, but feels a million miles away. This one day festival is surrounded by the leafy green parkland of Hatfield House, where you will be immersed in music, history, ancient oaks, bunting, fun and laughter.
From the intimacy of our Acorn Stage to the open air festival buzz of our Main Stage, we will bring you award winning musicians and inspiring new talent in one memorable day.
Our carefully curated stages are complemented by our lovingly hand-picked caterers and craftspeople. For our younger 'Folk by the Oakers' we have a world of creative workshops to discover onsite as well as our dedicated family friendly area.

GoCarShare Booking System
We’ve introduced a new booking system:
Passengers ‘book’ the journey. Once the driver has accepted, the passenger will be asked to prepay via PayPal.
A week after the journey has been completed we will transfer the money to the driver, minus our fee of 15%, which usually works out as just a couple of pounds. Drivers are welcome to factor this cost into the price they quote to take a passenger.
We don’t enforce the booking system, but it is important to use because:
1. It prevents people dropping out at the last minute so offers the drivers security.
2. It helps ensures the safety of the platform; everyone is trackable.
3. This is our way of funding the development of GoCarShare and ensuring that we are here next year too.
We hope you value GoCarShare and support us in using the booking system. Please shoot through any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
