Hartley Jazz Picnic / by Dawn Webb

Every year I like to get myself involved with some form of charity work, it's a great opportunity for me to give back a little something.

I like to spend my time with the happy folk at the Hartley Jazz Picnic here in sunny Kent.

I have uploaded a little piece on the history of the picnic.

The reason I shoot for the festival is so that I can get my images into the programme and show it off in all of it's glory for all to see and hopefully encourage others to come along.

It's a wonderful day out, people bring their deck chairs, picnic blankets, hampers full of food and lots of plonk.  Hog roasts are burning all day, face painting for children and not to mentioned the Jazz band.  National Lottery announcer Alan Dedicoat is the mani on the mike for the day.  Classic car show is placed next to the main marquee where we bring Marty & Belle for all to see.

So if you live local and fancy a jolly good knees up why not pop along on Sunday 28th June
