The Cultural Celebration, which is the sister event to the enormously successful Kent School Games and is sponsored by Kent County Council (KCC), will take place at the Winter Gardens in Margate on 18 September this year. It is set to provide a showcase for local talent as well as celebrate inclusion and diversity. The Cultural Celebration provides a platform and an outlet for a large number of young people, for many of whom this form of self-expression is, quite simply, life changing.

Alaric Green, who appeared on BBC’s The Voice performed at the Cultural Celebration in 2012 and said it was a very useful opportunity for him: “Being asked to be part of the Cultural Celebration in 2012 was important as it gave me one of my first opportunities to sing in front of a large audience, and did so much to build my confidence.”

The Cultural Celebration embraces music, dance, animation and visual art, and ensures that a large number of young people, including those from underprivileged and challenging backgrounds, are supported to take part. The Arts play a key role in the development of young people, raising self-esteem and communication skills, both of which are vital as they go out into the world.
