1920s Weekend - A Celebration for the 20s - Sittingbourne
10th July - 12th July 2020
Look forward to a new pilot festival, a range of entertainment, events and activity at venues in Sittingbourne.
Including three performances commissioned by Swale Borough Council in a pop up venue adjacent to Swale House which will host; 20's Themed Old Time Music Hall on Friday 10th July, A Jazz and Dance Evening featuring Sue Caroline and The Andy Wall 1920's Ensemble on the Saturday evening and a 'Murder Mystery' performed by The Company Upfront on the afternoon of Sunday July 12th. Ticket sales will open and further information will be published soon, look out for updates.
Other elements of the 20's Weekend will provide the opportunity for the towns venues, attractions, businesses and local organisations to showcase what the town has to offer with a 1920's theme.
There is also an aspiration to welcome a 'Vintage Fun Fair' to the town and work is close to completion to make this happen.
With part of the towns regeneration scheme and a phased opening of a new Travelodge, cinema and restaurants throughout 2020 the weekend of events provides another reason to come and have another look at Sittingbourne as a destination.
Work continues to pull together a comprehensive programme of events and activities and details will be published as soon all those that wish to contribute have had time to submit details.
The heritage attractions have pledged to take part to tell the town's 1920's story, as well as a number of leading community groups to ensure this event provides plenty of entertainment for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Start making or order your 20's costume now! Organisers would love to see the town centre full with costumed characters, vintage vehicles and market. There will be prizes for the 'Best Dressed 20's Shop Window' and also a 1920's dress code for some of the entertainment and spot prizes for those dressed in 1920's costumes. With groups and organisations taking part, parade, stroll and promenade along the High Street and take in an additional offer in the town over the weekend.
So plenty to look forward to and to plan - now is the time to save the date and remember to keep an eye on this webpage as we receive more confirmation of events taking place as part of the 1920's Weekend in Sittingbourne.
