IntraFest 2022 – sunshine, smiles and star talent on show

Audiences in Medway were delighted by the quality of performers at IntraFest 2022, taking place between 15-17 July in Medway. Musicians, singers, poets, dancers, artists and DJs flocked to the Old High Street Intra, between Chatham and Rochester, to demonstrate the wealth of local talent that Medway has to offer.

Audiences gather in the Flippin’ Frog Garden.

The festival kicked off at Sun Pier House, with a showcase of the brand-new Historic England HSHAZ ‘Round Here composition by Dani Osoba and Thomas Harvey, celebrating the High Street and co-written by members of the local community.

It was such a pleasure to work with so many fantastic local business in the Old High Street Intra in the Medway towns: wonderful, committed individuals and entrepreneurs who came together to celebrate the vast array of local musical talent in Medway. It was great to see new people on the High Street, music in unusual places and people enjoying themselves all weekend!”
