Art in the Park returns to Milton Creek Country Park in Sittingbourne this weekend

By Poppy Jeffery

The fifth annual Art in the Park will take place this weekend.

Last year, more than 1,500 people flocked to Milton Creek Country Park to enjoy a day of activities, music and art.

Organisers from MBR (Mind, Body, Rhythm) Productions hope this year’s will be the biggest one yet.

It is the first time the group has run the event, taking over from the Milton Creek Trust.

There will be fire-eaters, acrobats, live music and amusements at the free celebration on Saturday from 11am to 7pm.

The music stage, hosted by Big Jam Studios on the Eurolink, will see performances from Jack Rose, Jasmine Knight, Iona McCain, Elizmi Haze, Twisted Riö, Aeronaut, Scott Jenner and Gillian Spooner, Tommy B, Kdotmapz, Alex James Attrill, Jah Troopers and Olly James.

Also taking to the stage will be ShakeThat Dance Company, Bourne Gymnastics Club, Artistic Twirlers and authentic African drumming from charity Diversity House.

MBR Productions was started at the beginning of the year by staff from the Jimmy’s Centre Community Projects, run by Kerry Consitt, and works within schools to teach youngsters aged four to 18 with learning disabilities, behavioural problems, mental health and neurological problems to make music and videos.

Miss Consitt said: “We’re really excited, it’s going to be an amazing day.

“We’ve got one of our MBR project girls performing, Hannah Linehan, and we’ve had her in the studio too and she can play about 10 different instruments. It’s a brilliant line-up, there’s lots for kids to do and we’ve also got Miss Kent as one of our special guests. It’s all coming together.”

There will also be fire engines, police vehicles and food from around the world.
