It’s an essential guide to what’s on, when and where over Zest Fest weekend!
The festival takes place on 3 and 4 June at Westenhanger Castle, with a theme of creativity, wellbeing and celebrating the human body.
The weekend will be packed with performances, workshops and activities, live music and food and drink.
The 2023 programme features a wealth of headline acts, including:
Simia Circus will be entertaining the crowds with aerial acrobatics and fire displays and giving festival-goers a chance to try their hand at circus skills, including flying trapeze, aerial hoop, aerial yoga and juggling.
All the way from Toulouse, Ni Une Ni Deux will perform their thought provoking show ‘Imperfections’ through a series of acrobatic lifts.
Live music acts Randolph Matthews, Sophia Syndicate and DJ Technical Finger on the Music Stage, plus a family rave and more music from harpist India Blue, the Showtime Choir, Kate Bradley and Dave Ferra, Folkestone’s Busking Out project and Ashford Concert Band taking place across the weekend.
There will be lots more to see and do, including at Strange Cargo’s craft tent, storytelling sessions, relaxing treatments in the Manor House, a sound bath, running workshops and a group bike ride led by Cycling UK.
