A mix of familiar faces and new names are lined up to entertain you on Sunday, July 13th, as our popular Garden Party takes up residence once more in the Good Intent.
Philip Kane will be joined by fellow Cultured Llama author, Gordon Meade, while Sam Fentiman-Hall will showcase a new short play. Sophie Williams (or Sophie Wophie as she’s known to most of you) is taking a break from singing and dancing to share poetry in her own inimitable style, as is award winning playwright, Sarah Hehir. The rapidly-making-a-name-for-himself, Dylan Oscar Rowe, completes our line up of family friendly writers for another glorious – we hope – Sunday afternoon.
In between the words, we’ve enchanting music guaranteed to chill you out. The ever wonderful Gavin Alexander returns, along with the beautiful Tendayi Sutherland and the lyrical, alternative folk of The Flowing. A new face to most of you will be a discovery of mine, from the youth stage at Love Music Hate Racism 2011: Talented young singer songwriter Sophia Beeby joins us, along with friend Luke Fraser.
We’re delighted that comics Mat Wils and Nigel Adams have kindly agreed to host for us, reprising their roles from our very first garden party two years ago.
Children are very welcome, as always, with the Word Shed offering a chance to create more leaves for the Poetree. There will be the usual Open Mic session too – just turn up and add your name to the list on the day. First come first served, as it is a limited time spot.
Come along with friends and family for Medway’s most charming day out. The fun starts at 1pm and is scheduled to finish at 5pm – should you wish to stay a little longer, I’m sure Karen and Dal will be thrilled!
