We now look forward to a new pilot festival, a range of entertainment, events and activity at venues in Sittingbourne taking place 16 - 18 July 2021
Including three performances commissioned by Swale Borough Council in a pop up venue adjacent to Swale House which will host; 20's Themed Old Time Music Hall on Friday 16th July, A Jazz and Dance Evening featuring Sue Caroline and The Andy Wall 1920's Ensemble on the Saturday evening and a 'Murder Mystery' performed by The Company Upfront on the afternoon of Sunday July 18th. Ticket sales will open and further information will be published in 2021, look out for updates.
We aspire to build on the plans from 2020 which included participation of artistes and entertainers such Micky the Magician, Jazz Omnibus, Dance4Kent with 'Flapper Girls and Charleston Demonstration' and the 106.9 SFM Community Radio Road Show keeping everyone informed and entertained. .
Other elements of the 20's Weekend will provide the opportunity for the towns venues, attractions, businesses and local organisations to showcase what the town has to offer with a 1920's theme.
There is also an aspiration to welcome a 'Vintage Fun Fair' to the town and work is close to completion to make this happen.
Work continues to pull together a comprehensive programme of events and activities and details will be published in 2021.
The heritage attractions have pledged to take part to tell the town's 1920's story, as well as a number of leading community groups to ensure this event provides plenty of entertainment for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Now there is even more time to plan and make your 20's costume. Organisers would love to see the town centre full with costumed characters, vintage vehicles and market. There will be prizes for the 'Best Dressed 20's Shop Window' and also a 1920's dress code for some of the entertainment and spot prizes for those dressed in 1920's costumes. With groups and organisations taking part, parade, stroll and promenade along the High Street and take in an additional offer in the town over the weekend.
So plenty to look forward to and to plan - now is the time to save the date and remember to keep an eye on this webpage as we receive more confirmation of events taking place as part of the 1920's Weekend in Sittingbourne.
