The much-loved annual Tarner Festival was one of so many events that couldn't take place in 2020. This year the celebration was pushed back to September, where it was finally able to return to the delight of the community.
The Festival took place in Tarner Park and featured a live music stage with wide range of talented local acts. South East Dance performers transformed the playground, while older kids had fun creating a graffiti wall backdrop to the spectacle. Stalls offered free giant jammie dodgers and local apples. More apples were pressed and transformed into juice before festival goers eyes.
Meanwhile, indoors animal lovers could meet a range of amazing creatures from hedgehogs to pythons.
The celebration of the Tarner community felt all the more magical after such a long wait to be able to come together. The last Tarner Festival took place in July 2019.
The local TDC team were delighted to be part of the event as ever. We were there with our stall and our Community Development Workers on hand to discuss what's going on locally and our Healthy Neighbourhood Fund.
