Festival returning to Ashford town next weekend

Ashford Festival of Arts and Technology is braced to hit the town on the Saturday and Sunday 27th and 28th September and we have lots of surprises in store for you.

The craft groups have been hard at work creating some amazing displays in line with our theme of water.  The wonderful makers at Wood N Ware are busy creating the most beautiful and original benches for you to sit on and enjoy the music.  The benches will be auctioned off to raise money towards the enterprise and our charity so check out our auction HERE and start bidding, there is only a week left..To find out more, visit our website HERE.

Here is a taster of the items to be auctioned off:

Park Mall will be the main stage for the festival this year, hosting art, craft and food stalls (Hot Trotters Hog Roast, Roaming Gringos Mexican food and a beer tent).  There will also be lots of stunning water themed items on display created by the crafters at the Centre for Creativity and Enterprise.  Of course, there will be live music and some of the bands so far are: The Furry Love Lickers, Revolver, Kam Singh, All My Ghosts, Milly McCarron and Kelly-Ann Kaur among others.  In the evening of Saturday, Him & Her will delight you with their tunes at the Press Rooms Bistro and Dulcie May & The Mystery Cats will kick off from 8pm at the Auction House Bar, followed by 3D Beats and our very own DJ Ennoia until the early hours of the morning.

There will also be art on display at a number of venues:  Bobbinski’s on the Lower High Street, James’s Hairdressers, the Auction House Bar and the Richard Grebby Photographic Studio on New Street.

So come and join us for a weekend of fun and be part of Ashford’s ever growing creative scene.  See you then.
