Charivari Day 2021

The grant from Cllr Keutenius will be spent on artists fees for

carnival workshops for Charivari Day carnival in Folkestone on 10th July.

 

Decision:

To provide funding of £500 to the above project.

 

 

Reason for decision:

This event is now 25 years old and has continued to attract participation from both schools and members of the public since 1997. It is a significant community event for Folkestone and brings together participants and spectators from many backgrounds and walks of life. The route from the Fishmarket to The Leas Bandstand is lined with thousands of spectators who come along to enjoy this free event and to enjoy watching the parade. Our adapted online carnival was very successful this year and will provide a back up if we are not able to deliver a parade.
