Create Platform: Mr Harper's Picnic

23 Jul 2017


Bring a picnic and join in the family fun as we celebrate the birthday of Mr George Harper – the man who generously donated the beautiful Hubert Fountain to Victoria Park and the town’s people! 

Expect Victorian dress, ‘make and take’ decorative workshops, and special performances, as we help tell the remarkable story of one man’s love of Ashford and all things CREATE-ive.

Create Platform is a new week-long programme of arts events from the organisers of the Create Music Festival. From 14th-23rd July 2017, we will be introducing new creative activities around the borough for a range of ages to experience and enjoy.
