Outdoor event of 2016 - Margate Seafront 5th / 6th March 2016

We have been working with the organisers of the Margate Beach cross weekend for many years providing public address along the seafront in Margate. The system stretches a long length of the seafront providing loud and clear commentary. We look forward to the next event working with the organisers in October.


Our first event of the year was the Margate Blessing of the sea 10th Jan 2016

Blessing of the Sea Event, Margate 2016


Margate is the setting for a Blessing of the Seas in the Greek Orthodox celebrations at Epiphany (6th January) marking the baptism of Christ.  Margate was chosen for the honour in the mid-twentieth century because there is a large community of Greek Cypriot residents in the town. It’s organised by the local  Greek Orthodox Church whose Archishop leads the devotions and begins at the church of St Michael the Archangel. After a short service  a procession of many dignitaries in full regalia, both religious and civic, follows the piper to Marine Sands & the beach . Doves are released, prayers given and a decorated cross is hurled into the waters to be retrieved by a young diver for the Archbishop.

Kent PA Hire provided Public address for this event, ensuring the large crowds can hear the service.
