A large crowd gathered at Ellington Park last night (August 27) for the first event of the Ramsgate Festival of Sound.

The Let’s Go Outside cabaret from Screaming Alley featured the songs of the former Wham! and then solo star George Michael.

  1. It was an absolutely great night. It’s so nice seeing the park back to full use and people of all ages having a good time. Well done Screaming Alley,FoEP and RTC.

    • Yes the bandstand looks amazing. Kids playing in the park and families out in the open having fun times. Our toddler loved the DJ but we had to go so didn’t see the whole show. Great time had by all it seems.

  2. Did you take a lateral flow test before or after the event, or both?
    Or are you just hoping you haven’t contracted covid, or given it to someone else?

  3. Good to see people of all ages enjoying themselves in the wide open air – that is the best and most effective health tonic of all. Negativity does quite the opposite.
