The event is taking place over a weekend in September

A multicultural food festival is coming to Mote Park in Maidstone from September 1-3.

Shemomedjamo, an event which seeks to join the dots between cultural practices, cuisines and art forms from the far flung corners of the globe, will feature a programme of music, dance, art and craft.

From Thai curry to wood fired Italian pizza, Seychelles-inspired dishes to Kolkata street food, festival goers can tour the world via their tastebuds throughout the weekend.

Shemomedjamo isn’t just about food.

The cuisines present will be complemented by the sights, sounds and smells of cultural traditions and practices from around the world and an array of musical offerings.

Festival goers will be treated to performances from the likes of dhol and bhangra artists King Gurcharan Mall and the Dhol Blasters, Candaian folk outfit The Burning Hell, dancehall selector Jamie Rodigan, dub and reggae crew Channel One Sound System and TootArd Moutain Rock reggae band from the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
