With over forty years’ experience in the music industry and a demonstrable track record in events, we are exceptionally well placed to assist local artists and arts organisations to develop, promote and stage their community events.
We founded and manage Margate Mod & Sixties Festival, Skagate, Margate Soul Festival and more recently continued the work of the late David Mossman through Margate Jazz Festival. Celebrating Margate’s musical heritage, these festivals attract strong local support and an international audience. We also run an eclectic programme of smaller events throughout the year, showcasing talent from Thanet and beyond.
Olby’s Creative Hub provides performance space for small to medium sized touring bands and performers of all genres. We have played host to acts such as Neville Staples of The Specials, welcomed hip hop artist Amy True, hosted events for POW! and Looping the Loop.
Let us provide the expertise, equipment and contacts to help you plan, promote and deliver your community event.
