Digibury shortlisted as a finalised

It was great news that our monthly meet up Digibury was shortlisted as a finalist in the One to Watch category, sponsored by Lenleys.

This award is all about outstanding potential and the promise of realisation and for cultural organisations, groups or individuals in East Kent which started out less than five years ago. 

Have you been yet? If you love digital and communications, then pop along. It's really rather good.

Kent's cultural icon

Orlando Bloom was awarded the prestigious icon award. Here's his acceptance speech.

Great venue

Congratulations to all the winners! We had fun managing the live tweeting for Canterbury 4 Culture's Twitter feed during the event. For some, one of the objectives of the evening was to liberate the balloons and take them home. We are naming no names here!
