A new Winter Festival is taking place in Broadstairs

Tim Edey joins the Winter Festival line up

A new Winter Festival takes place with a Burns Night Ceilidh at the Pavilion-on-the Sands tonight (January 25) and a weekend of performances at the Sarah Thorne Theatre.

All proceeds from the event go to Broadstairs Folk Week.

Folk Week Director Jo Tuffs said “Thank you to all the committee and volunteers who are working so hard to make this event a success and fund-raise for the festival. It’s a chance to meet up with friends, burn off some calories and see some great bands.”
