Kingston's Live Music Project - CirKT

Kingston launched its exciting music project ‘CirKT’ in February. Throughout 2019, there will be a programme of music events, industry conferences, a new talent development programme and workshops with focused activities in June (21-23) and November (25-30).

Funded by the Mayor of London as part of his London Borough of Culture initiative, Kingston Council was awarded £90,000 to celebrate its home-grown talent, rich music heritage, live music scene and the night-time economy.

Kingston’s grass roots project is being led by Anna Doyle, whose experience includes directing the Reading-upon-Thames Festival’s cultural programme, which is part of Arts Council England’s ‘Great Places’ scheme and working as a Lead Creative Producer during the 2012 London Olympics.
