Broadstairs and St Peter’s Town Council launches debut Community Festival

Pierremont Hall in Broadstairs

Broadstairs & St. Peter’s Town Council is to host its first Community Festival in Pierremont Park on April 27 from 10am-4pm.

The free to attend event aims to educate and empower residents of all ages to get the best out of their town by helping raise awareness of the number of community groups and local businesses that can support people in Broadstairs and the neighbouring areas.

Town Mayor, Cllr Kristian Bright, said: “The festival will be split into Cleaner, Safer and Kinder zones, reflecting the key objectives of the Town Council and is a fantastic way to introduce and connect individuals and families to well-being opportunities they may not know in their local area.”

Neurodivergent Thanet, Age UK, The Gap Project, Thanet Community Safety Team, Kent Police, Kent Fire and Rescue Services, the RNLI and Broadstairs Town Team are just some of the groups and organisations joining the event to advise and inform people about their services and how they can get involved:

Alongside this event, there will be a Spring Market at Pierremont Hall which will include small, independent local businesses selling handmade items.

There will be a licensed bar on-site and indoor and outdoor seating so people can sit and enjoy music from the talented line up of musicians, including Little Chapel, T n T, ROBBO and Big Steve.

Deputy Mayor, Cllr Mike Garner said: “Some of our local councillors and officers will be attending to help answer any questions you may have, to let you know about future Town Council events or to discuss hiring Pierremont Hall or Retort House for your own event. This is a festival with something for everyone, so we look forward to seeing you there!”
