|The Ashford Festival of arts and technology launches on 27th Sept!|
As someone who recently moved to Ashford, kent, I was delighted to discover a new local festival launching this year - the Ashford festival of arts and technology, is a three-day celebration of local artists, crafters and emerging technology.
For three days, the festival will be taking over Ashford High Street (Friday 27th Sept - Sunday 29th Sept), with events including creative workshops, live music, galleries, light shows - and on the Saturday and Sunday, a marketplace filled with local crafters. With an augmented reality tour scheduled for Sunday in the form of a virtual treasure hunt (with a real prize, of course), there's something scheduled to suit everyone.
You can find more details on the Ashford Festival website, or follow live updates on twitter @FestivalAshford. The festival is free to attend.
You'll be able to find me at the festival on Saturday - selling cakes and biscuits to keep you going between workshops, live gigs and augmented reality experiences, so come and say hi :)
