POW! Thanet in pictures and video

Gemma at the 2017 POW festival Photo POW

Fifty events over four days, POW! Thanet showcased everything from talks to sport to hip hop battles.

From isle pupils demonstrating their moves to choir conductors with a bird cage in their hair – POW! Had it all.

The festival ran from March 8-11 to mark International Women’s Week.

This year’s theme was Movers and Makers, to tie in with the Entangled exhibition at Turner Contemporary!

A focus on young people included a book launch by popular DJ and broadcaster Gemma Cairney with her yellow bus parked outside Turner Contemporary Margate! and a series of participatory activities at Dreamland.
