Ramsgate Arts Barge teams up with music hall to launch family-friendly matinee gigs

Gigs at Ramsgate Music Hall in Turner Street

Family-friendly matinee gigs on the last Sunday of each month are being launched by the Ramsgate Arts Barge group.

The  live music sessions will be held between 2pm-5pm at Ramsgate Music Hall with the first event taking place next Sunday (September 25).

The shows are open to all and will feature a variety of music genres over the months. The matinee shows are child-friendly.

Fresh from performances at Ramsgate Festival of Sound & Contrapop Festival, the launch event is an acoustic special featuring Ramsgate musicians;  Josh Flowers, Jenny Hall and Adam Coney.

Josh Flowers is a UK based songwriter and musical collaborator. His debut album Mellow Drama is out now. Josh is signed to Universal Publishing and is one half of the transatlantic duo Echobaby.

Jenny Hall is a songwriter living in Ramsgate whose music is deeply entrenched in the complexities of what it means to be human. Drawing inspiration from country, folk and Americana to tell stories of love, loss and vulnerability.

Adam Coney is a composer/guitarist with a keen sense of production aesthetic who draws on contemporary classical, electronic, folk and jazz vernacular.

Tickets for the show are adults £10, children £5. Book at  www.ramsgateartsbarge.org

With full planning application approved in October 2021, the Ramsgate Arts Barge will be a ‘not-for-profit’ arts and cultural space permanently moored in Ramsgate Royal Harbour.

The aim is  to provide access to the arts for children 2-16 years in Thanet via complimentary extracurricular art classes, workshops, programmes and courses.
