Ashford Jubilee 2022: a thank you to the Queen on film

Time to celebrate with the Queen! Really delighted to announce a new project that’s going to be happening in super-quick time. Ashford Jubilee 2022: a thank you to the Queen on film! 

Funder Films CIC will be commissioning eight young film-makers to help with this project over the next month, asking them to document some of the celebrations that are happening in June both in Ashford town centre and the surrounding villages. Not just the celebrations but also preparations for the celebrations. 

The project is funded by the Arts Council Let’s Create Jubilee fund. For more details please see the press release. Please also see the press release if you’re a young film-maker (or even not so young) and would be keen to take part.

Ashford’s Hidden Treasures – 26

This is the final instalment of the Ashford’s Hidden Treasures series… Saving the best till last? Well… Sir John Fogge has definitely become one of my heroes – someone who I knew nothing about 6 months ago! Many thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for funding this project, to Ashford Heritage for providing it with support, to Steve Newton for the fantastic music and to Robert Barker for the great logo. Last but not least, many thanks to all the admins on the community groups who have been so supportive over the past 6 months. And to you for watching and listening! Happy Christmas everyone!
