Harlow Arts Council & Harlow Museum invite you to
The Art of the Garden Party 2019
WE might be heading towards the end of the summer but there’s still time to enjoy the last few weeks of sunshine at Harlow Museum with the annual celebration of local community performing arts groups.
Harlow Arts Council and Harlow Museum present the Art of the Garden Party on Sunday 8 September from 2pm – 4pm, the seventh year running that many of the town’s performing arts groups and the local community have been welcomed into the museum gardens for a free afternoon of entertainment.
The idea for the afternoon began in 2011 when Harlow Arts Council decided to run a small Arts Festival to promote the vibrancy and diversity of arts across the town. As the Festival increased in size, HAC wanted the opportunity to bring its members to the community without any cost to the audience, making the afternoon truly accessible to everyone. The Museum presented a perfect venue with its beautiful walled gardens, and a unique environment for the groups to perform in.
This year sees an amazing line up of performers across the generations sharing their passion for song, music and dance with New Edition Singers, Harlow Rock School, Karen Chapman School of Dancing and the Inn Scribers performing.
There’s also the opportunity to try some drama and dance techniques with workshops during the afternoon.
There is also plenty to do on the Community Green run by the Volunteer Centre Harlow and Rainbow Services with opportunities to meet local voluntary groups including town favourites the Community Farm.
The Art of the Garden Party is a true community event made possible by the generous support of the Live Well in Harlow Project, Harlow Council and Harlow Recreation Trust which is managed by Essex Community Foundation.
Art of the Garden Party, Sunday 8 September 2pm-4pm Entrance Free. Harlow Museum Gardens, Muskham Road, off First Avenue
