Festability are a group of parents of disabled children and adults who saw a video shared on the BBC and thought “oh we really need to do that here in Kent”.
“…Of course, this was on a Saturday evening, and we may have been guilty of having one or two glasses of wine when we thought this. Isn’t that how all good ideas start though?
We were totally overwhelmed by the interest expressed and the offers of support received once we mentioned it to a few people and quickly we decided we had to get this off the ground because the demand was huge.
So we are putting on a Music Festival for people with disabilities living in Kent.
We aim for it to be as close to other Music Festivals as possible, but with some additional elements that will help make it more suitable and be fully inclusive to all.
This will include a quiet/chill zone with sensory lights and sounds, a changing places suite, qualified staff to help assist and a karaoke tent!”
LOCATION: Quex Park, Park Lane, Birchington-on-Sea, Kent CT7 0BH (It’s near Margate)
