There will be no Frogstock in 2011, but the festival will return at some time in the future. Getting a suitable venue and all the licenses, permissions and facilities we need now the event has grown so big has become a mammoth undertaking. Sadly it doesn’t look like it will be possible this summer, but we will get there eventually! Join our mailing list below to get the latest news.

...from Frogstock 2009
We’d like to send special thanks to Jimmy and Barbara at the Swan in Coney Weston for hosting Frogstock in 2009. Barbara will be retiring in 2010 after many years in the Suffolk pub trade and her son Jimmy who has been running the pub with her will be moving to a new pub in Braintree. We wish them both the best of luck in the future
Frogstock is a crazy festival of music, art and comedy. Over the last few years Frogstock has showcased many new and original performers and earned a keen following. In 2009 Frogstock moved to a new venue, The Swan pub in Coney Weston.
Frogstock boasts all the amenities you would expect at a rock festival, including a large outdoor stage, a bar, a dance tent, an acoustic stage, hot food vendors, parking, camping and the infamous festival toilets. There is always range of music, including folk, rock and dance. There is also stand-up comedy and performance art to enjoy.
Frogstock was created by Frog Morris and he continues to curate the event. Frog Morris is an artist who grew up in the village of Blo’ Norton in Norfolk. Frog aims to programme local acts as well as a number of interesting and unusual acts from further a field.
Frogstock started as a joke between a group of teenagers in 1995, but the event grew over a number of years. While an undergraduate at Art College in 2000, Frog started to invite musicians and artists to come and perform in the field at the back of his family farm in Blo Norton. Now Frogstock can regularly attract crowds of people from across the country to come and enjoy great new music.
Local publican and keen musician Jimmy Kingston heard regulars in his pub talking about Frogstock and hosted a new version of the event at his pub in Coney Weston in 2009.
