Who’s Who

The festival is organised by Ramsgate Festival of Sound CIC and is supported by a team of dedicated founding members and passionate volunteers interested in getting closely involved in the running of a festival. We are especially indebted to those who have spent years developing the annual summer festival, especially the team at Ramsgate Arts led by Suzy Humphries. Huge thanks to Richard Oades, Janice Gibbs, Pam Hardiman, Clive Holland, Jenny Butler and Wendy Rumsey for laying the path and shining the light!

@mariannedissard: Sunny weekend in #ramsgate… but last week was thorny. Fence took a beating, but fence still standing! Changed, altered, maybe even more striking. @ramsgatefest @ramsgaterecorde @ramsgateweek @ramsartsbarge @we_love_thanet @PioneeringEK
