Labradors know it. You know it too – that feel­ing when you can’t stop eating be­cause ev­ery­thing just tastes so good.

A new fes­ti­val launch­ing in Maid­stone this week­end is named af­ter the Ge­or­gian phrase for do­ing ex­actly that. She­mo­med­jamo – or if it’s eas­ier to pro­nounce, the Maid­stone Mul­ti­cul­tural Food Fes­ti­val – is a chance to dine around the world and cel­e­brate mul­ti­cul­tural co­he­sion in Maid­stone and across Kent.

The free event in Mote Park, from Fri­day, Septem­ber 1 to Sun­day, Septem­ber 3, will fea­ture world mu­sic, dance, art and crafts and a melt­ing pot of cul­tures.

The pro­gramme in­cludes New Or­leans jazz, Pun­jabi bhangra, Mex­i­can mari­achi and reg­gae on the Sun­day. Artists per­form­ing in­clude The Burn­ing Hell, the al­terego of Cana­dian song­writer Mathias Kom, Tootard (Ara­bic for Straw­ber­ries), a moun­tain rock reg­gae band, Jamie Rodi­gan and some eclec­tic DJ sets.

The fes­ti­val runs from noon to 8pm on the Fri­day, 10am to 8pm on the Satur­day and 10am to 6pm on the Sun­day. For more in­for­ma­tion visit vis­it­maid­
