The festival takes place every year in June and Chaucer College has been closely involved since it was launched in 2007. This year we offered the local community performances of the Soran Bushi, a dance showing the struggle of Japanese fishermen against the elements and Kendo, a martial art, with its dramatically dressed combatants.The individual performance on a Taiko drum made a particular impression. There was also an opportunity to experience traditional skills such as calligraphy and origami, both of which proved very popular. The people of Folkestone were very appreciative of the hard work put in by our students and the students had lots of opportunity to practise their English.
