How do you become a professional musician and band manager? The brilliant young GYG reporters found out when they spoke to Adam Ouissellat who founder South London Samba the samba group that performed at Cloud9 this summer.

Look out for three more creative career conversations.

Music, dance, art and lots of family fun. Festival day at Castle Hill this summer was a blistering day of incredible entertainment and workshops that brought the community together.

From samba to street dance, craft to capoeira the day overflowed with free activities for people to try.

The festival day formed part of a spring and summer of creative opportunities for people from the local area to try and we were thrilled to see so many people get involved. Thank you!

A huge thank you to our partner in the event, Grand Gravesend Ebbsfleet Garden City Northfleet Big Local Arts Council England and Creative Estuary.

Aren't these guys brilliant!
The brilliant GYG and Grand Gravesend produced free youth hiphop classes with the choreographer from the dance crew Flawless. A group of 10 young people met weekly over the summer to learn new skills and create this fab routine. Well done everyone!
Huge thanks to Ebbsfleet Garden City, Creative Estuary and Arts Council England who funded and supported the project.

Sound up!
Youโ€™ve got to listen to Cloud9 Festival community choir in action.
We think this is brilliant for a first time choir!
Taught by MOBO winner Volney Morgan over the summer, these guys got together to sing this mash-up of Kanyeโ€™s Power and Pharrell Wiliams' Happy.

Thanks to Grand Gravesend for producing this project and our partners Ebbsfleet Garden City, Creative Estuary and Arts Council England for making the festival possible.

Special thanks to Northfleet Big Local for allowing us to film at the Secret Garden, it is beautiful!

The day that Granny Turismo came to town was one to remember.

Saturday welcomed the duo to Castle Hill in Ebbsfleet and The Hive in Northfleet, and where ever they went, fun and frolics followed. We loved it and we hope you did too.

Social distancing >>>>>

We want to keep everyone as safe a possible so Saturday's festival will be in line with the Government's current social distancing rules and have a lot of fun!

This means...

We'll have limited numbers on site and we'll be asking bubbles of people to socially distance.

We'll have limited numbers in our workshops too. We recommend getting to the workshop area 10mins before the session starts to secure your spot.

We'll have cleansing stations across the site to keep your hands clean.

We'll be using track and trace too - using the NHS app and a written form.

Our performances will be repeating throughout the afternoon so there's more than one chance to see the giant puppets, skaters, singer and samba band.

We can't wait to see you there!

Could this be the coolest DJ booth ever?

A gold ice-cream van created by artist Sadie Hennesey and originally commissioned for Estuary Festival this year is now coming to our festival day on Saturday 17 July - where DJ Conrad Lee will be mixing tunes with a summer vibe... if only is still served ice cream too!

Meet the Worlds first โ€“ and only! โ€“ Shopping Trolley Dance Display Team.

Doris, Marge and Mary attended the same dance class as young girls but were out of touch for many years until they met, quite by chance, on a Turkey and Tinsel weekend 2 years ago.

Fate had obviously reunited them. After deciding that there was still life after their bus passes, they formed their troupe.

They meet once a week in Waitrose car park to choreograph their snazzy routines, much to the pleasure of car park users who blow their horns appreciatively.

And now you can meet the Grannies and see their street performances at Cloud9 Festival on Saturday 17 July!
