Party in the Park - pic­tures

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

Ash­ford was alive with mu­sic at the week­end for the 13th Fes­ti­val in the Park. Build­ing on the suc­cess of last year, the fes­ti­val en­ter­tained vis­i­tors in North Park, near the Stour Cen­tre, from Fri­day un­til Sun­day evening. The pro­gramme of free live mu­sic and dance, which was or­gan­ised by Ed­ward Lock­ett, had more than 20 acts fea­tur­ing solo per­form­ers, bands, child and adult dance troupes, mother and baby/tod­dler stands, an Ash­ford Mu­seum stand, a fair­ground, a beer tent and food stalls. There was a spe­cial per­for­mance on the Sun­day night from the North Park Hill­bil­lies - an acous­tic band made up from those in­volved with or­gan­is­ing and run­ning the fes­ti­val. Mr Lock­ett said: “The acts were fan­tas­tic, the weather was great - it was a huge suc­cess.”
