A look into The Artigras, heart of Ashford Festival this May.

If you missed the it on the 15th and 16th May, the festival showcased the very best of Ashford’s creative talents as many musicians, makers, innovators & creative producers flocked to the High Street and Park Mall Shopping Centre to bring the Creative Collective to the people of Ashford town centre.

The festival delivered two days of wonderful cultural activities, all kicked off this morning with a marching musical parade from the kids at Phoenix Community Primary School! The procession of smiling faces were paraded through the High Street, charged with fantastic noise, stopping shoppers in their tracks with their impressive thundering drums.

The High Street and Park Mall Shopping Centre were taken over for the two days by stalls full of arts and crafts; impressive displays of canvas paintings, photographic prints and handmade fashion.
