Medway Culture Club Carnival is a FREE Family Fun Day and is a chance for us to get together and celebrate the diversity within our community. We will immerse ourselves in the traditions of the Notting Hill Carnival, which was established by members of the Windrush generation. Now the largest street festival in Europe, we plan to bring to Medway some of this cosmopolitan event’s culture and creativity, which champions diversity and inclusion. We have limited capacity on the day. Please RSVP HERE.

The main event is planned to take place between 11am – 4pm on Saturday 3rd August at Woodlands Youth Centre, Woodlands Road, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 2BX (which has both indoor and outdoor space to be utilised).
