We’re pleased to announce this splendid line-up for our forthcoming Americana evening at the Barge on Saturday 14th July. The event will be a fundraiser for the Medway Broadside, an independent news and culture paper for the Medway Towns whose print and online editions are produced through the efforts of a skilled and dedicated team of local volunteers working together to produce an eloquent and representative voice for the community. The Broadside covers local news, politics, arts, culture and sport, providing an incisive take on events in Medway, whilst celebrating and promoting local creativity. We’ll be raising money to keep it online for another year and fund this Autumn’s print run.

That said, anybody can offer a contribution to the Broadside as long as it is not politically parmesan, simply by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d urge you to do so. We all have our views and our take on things, after all. Everybody deserves a voice, particularly in a local environment where issues like city status are at the forefront of public debate.
Come along. Check it out. Embrace the alternative. We’d love to see you and to listen to you. In the meantime, here’s a word from one who knew…
