Cloud9 is a new creative wellbeing festival for Ebbsfleet, Swanscombe and Northfleet. Cloud9 brings together the finest street arts, creative classes and fitness sessions with a twist!
Get creative, get active, try new things & develop new hobbies as part of our free programme taking place online and outdoors throughout Spring and Summer 2021. Bringing communities together, we want to rebuild connection to one another as we are released from lockdown.
On 24–25 April we will have a warm-up weekender, with classes in fitness, dance and crafts that take place online. Then later this Summer, our activities will spill into the outdoors with workshops and performances coming straight to the streets.
We believe that culture and creativity are fundamental tools for bringing communities together as well as promoting positive mental and physical health.
Cloud9 is presented by The Grand Healthy Living Centre and produced by POP & Social Storytellers. Cloud9 Festival is commissioned by Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and Creative Estuary.

About the organisation
The Grand was set-up in 2001 as a multi-partner agency working across the borough. We provide the Healthy Living Centre for Gravesham and deliver the Gifted Young Generation (GYG) programme for young people. In the past 20 years we have helped hundreds of people. Our work and objectives change as local needs change and funding is available, but we constantly strive to assist residents with their physical, emotional and mental health, both here at the Grand or by referring people to partner or local organisations who are best placed to help. We’ve worked with every school in the borough, managed community events, hosted an annual youth performance at the Woodville theatre for the past 10 years and run a community allotment.
