Android and iPhone Design

I need to create an Android and iOS app. I need to create an app for a festival that will show events that are happening at the festival. I have all the details and design I need. I'm just wondering what's the best way to do it?

I have HTML, CSS and JavaScript experience.

Phonegap or cordova

Essentially the app is a Web view wrapped around a webapp

Just checked PhoneGap there - Adobe has discontinued PhoneGap Build and ended investment in PhoneGap and Apache Cordova.
This website is no longer being updated.

Adobe ending investment in Cordova does not mean cordova is dead, last release was August 4, 2020

Is it a throwaway app or will it live on and need maintenance and TLC later?

Look at ways to use the same code on both platforms (cross-platform apps) like Xamarin.Forms

If it's a one off, it might be worth taking a look at one of the app builders if the requirements are fairly straightforward.

Something like AppGyver

The App wll be used only for the festival but will need to be updated every year for the festival. It's basically a schedule for the festival. A day to day programme.

Thanks for all your help.

I'd develop it in Xamarin.Forms and try to future proof it so when it grows from just a schedule to also include ticket sales etc you already have provision for that.

There are already templates you could look at and reuse.
