It's in the name really. At their heart all of our events are about creating something by local people for the local people. And as part of that we like to support our community as much as possible.⁠
⁠
It's become a tradition for us to have local dance schools perform at our festivals, and the Surrey Chilli Festival is no different.⁠
⁠
We are delighted to have two amazing dance schools with us, @kidzgottalent and @resolutiondance.⁠
⁠
These kids are true pros! Make sure you catch them in action this weekend at Walton on Thames Cricket Club! 💃⁠
