Coming from London and having experienced the creativity that happens throughout the summer, inspires me but also makes me sad that the south coast especially Margate is lacking in something diverse. With having experience and contacts within the events industry I strongly guarantee that with my knowledge, experience and support from Margate and surrounding areas your input with funding could create something that attracts not only everyone of all ages from Thanet but outsiders hopefully even from overseas. The vision I have along with your support we can achieve this

What we'll deliver:

  • Employ staff and volunteers
  • Gain legal documents
  • Organise the event
  • Promote
  • Create a petition to approach Thanet council for permission

Why it's a great idea:

All I see in Margate right now is improving projects and a whole community bringing it back to where it belongs. A daytime festival in the sheets of Margate either mid or end of summer is exactly what we need: if London, Manchester, Canterbury, and a dozen other places in the U.K. Can do it why can't we??

Steps to get it done:

  • Book artists
  • Book date
  • Hire staff
  • Run promotion

It will benefit local business's as well as create jobs for local paid and volunteer. also bring in a whole new group of people
