Summer Magic

THREE Dates for your diary this summer

We have got a little magic lined up – literally! -for our supporters this summer, starting on Midsummer evening with the Whitstable Maritime Midsummer Ball and Charity Fundraiser. Then, in early July, Gamecock gets her first outing of the year at the Faversham Nautical Festival. And then there’s the high spot of our summer calendar – Whitstable Harbour Day on 3rd August. We are expecting up to 10,000 visitors this year, admission is free – what’s not to like?
