Bar and catering concessions are now open for this year’s Riverside Festival on Saturday, July 14.

Gravesham Borough Council is offering the opportunity for companies specialising in the provision of outdoor bar services, catering and ice-cream concessions to apply to trade at the main festival, held at the Riverside Leisure Area.

The council is asking anybody who owns a business which sells alcoholic and/or non alcoholic drinks, burgers, hotdogs, sweets, ice cream and also healthier food options to get in touch.

The annual music festival offers a mix of musical acts performing from noon to 7.30pm, arts and crafts stalls as well as family activities and entertainment throughout the day.

This year will be the fifth year of the festival.
