ThanetCAN Events Calendar

Thanks to those nice people at Google, there is now a ThanetCAN Events Calendar. Very much in its early stages, but the idea is that it will become a one-stop reference for the arts-related events in the area (and the air show, powerboat racing and horse shows) - as long as you tell us what's on. So add a comment with any events, or volunteer to maintain and update the Calendar itself.

And if you suggest an event please provide enough detail for an entry: date, location, title and where available a URL to link to. I'm not going to try to include film and theatre listings, more news on where to find them easily coming soon . . .

Bandstand Bash

Most traders and crafts people who attended the 'celebrating creative communities' event which took place on the Ramsgate Bandstand on Wellington Crescent on 26 May were happy enough with their day's takings to want to come back! Really good news! The day started at 2pm with eight traders and various stands from the Eastcliff in Bloom Group (who were planting sunflowers with the kids), Ruth Cutler with her Sea Garden Project and a face painter. There were a couple of hours of kids kareoke (which they seemed to enjoy) and then some local musical talent from girl group, the Jamm Tarts (check them out and then Jack Shaw. By this time the wind had picked up, and people were nipping off for something to eat and drink as unfortunately we had been let down by our caterer that morning so there was no refreshments available up there! A real shame beacuse the main band, Colin and the Crawfish, preceded their set with a half hour Cajun Dance workshop with about twenty people in the audience! It picked up slightly when they began their set, which was a great mix of really danceable cajun numbers, but by 8pm we had to call it a night. Thank you to everyone who made it!!!!
Next event will be a Spanish Midsummer celebration on 30 June. Get in touch if you would like to have a stand, perform or know someone else who would!
