We are pleased to announce the launch event for the Rochester Literature Festival.
The Garden Poetry Party will take place on Sunday 22nd July, at Eastgate House Gardens, between 12noon and 4pm.
Performers confirmed for the festival are:
The James Worse Public Address Method
Your comperes for the afternoon will be CO Jones and Mat Wills.
Should the weather be against us, the event will be held inside Eastgate House itself.
Among the entertainment will be at least one open mic session and a children’s creative corner, with more activities available for anyone to engage in. We’re very excited by the plans afoot and we do hope you’ll be able to join us. Artists, makers, craftspeople and book sellers are welcome to pitch a stall in the gardens at just £5. If you’re interested, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org There will also be refreshments available to buy, courtesy of Dot Cafe, Sonya’s Cupcakes and The Cocktail Club.
Should the weather be against us, the event will be held inside Eastgate House itself. An Medway Archive exhibition entitled ‘Metal Men of Medway’ is taking place at the same time, which looks at the stories of the art and memorials of Medway’s streets.
The Eastgate House Gardens are a wonderful space for any event, as proven by the Mad Hatters Tea Party last year, when Lewis Carroll’s characters inhabited the grounds for a day. We’re looking forward to bringing the house and gardens alive again with this inaugural Rochester Literature Festival event.
