Join East Kent Mencap for a one-day festival at Margate FC

The festival will be at Margate FC

Everyone loves a festival but many aren’t suitable for people with a learning disability.

To make people feel more included, East Kent Mencap has organised a one-day festival for all ages and abilities on Thursday, August 3 at Margate Football Club.

Everyone is invited to come along.

The event, between 1pm-5pm, will be free with plenty to enjoy, including live music from local bands, food outlets and stalls selling festival merchandise. Professionals will help you try your hand at circus skills, golf, cricket, and of course, have a kick about on the pitch! There will be fun for everyone, with gentler options including bingo, massage and sensory activities.

From 5.30pm until late there will be live bands and DJ’s at an over 18s gig, with a licensed bar in the clubhouse. Tickets for the gig cost £3.50. Numbers are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.

For tickets, contact or call 01843-224482. Payment can be made by card on the phone, or by cheque, payable to East Kent Mencap.
