Music rehearsals for bOing! this Friday

Gulbenkian are preparing for the annual bOing! International Family Festival which takes place on Saturday/Sunday (27-28 August).

As part of the festival, there is a stage being erected on the grass between Marlowe and the Senate building which will be used as a music stage by young people associated with ART31, a Kent-wide network funded by Gulbenkian, KCC and Arts Council England.

On Friday (26 August), this stage will be home to the annual Rock School who will be using it for rehearsals and performances. The rehearsals will take place during the day with the final performance planned for 14.00. The team will be monitoring the noise volume but there is likely to be some impact to those in the surrounding space.

Please do let any of the Gulbenkian team (in person or ext 3298) know if this activity proves to be disruptive.
