Your invite to the press launch for Fuse Medway Festival 2008

Date: 10/04/2008           Category: Arts and Libraries

PHOTO/INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITY You are invited to the press launch for Fuse Medway Festival - three weekends of great live performances and exhibitions. The launch takes place upstairs at The Brook Theatre, Old Town Hall, Chatham on Tuesday, 22 April, 1pm. Food and drinks will be served and as well as hearing about the exciting line-up for this year’s festival, you will also have the opportunity to dress a Hei person. This will make a great photo opportunity. The scarecrow-like community first came to Medway last summer, making Fort Amherst their home. They will return, as part of this year’s festival and desperately need clothing. Being so wooden, the Hei people will need your help to get dressed and will be very grateful if you can bring any old clothes you wish to donate; although we also have a spare pile of garments. Please rsvp to stephen.coole@medway.gov.uk by Wednesday 16 April. Arts Council England South East has awarded Fuse Medway Festival £80,335 towards the organisation and running of this year’s event. The festival is a 15-day celebration of arts and creativity. There’s theatre, inside and out, cabaret, music, visual arts, dance and a hamper-full of fun for families and the kids. Medway’s venues, streets and open spaces will buzz with the sights and sounds of the newest and most unusual performers from the area…and further afield. Kind regards, Kate Hazel Festival Manager Fuse Medway Festival. See it. Hear it. Be part of it. www.fusefestival.org.uk
