    Faversham Nautical Festival
    14th July 2018 - 15th July 2018

    Arriving by boat the unique spire of St Mary's Church beckons you from across the marshes to come and enjoy the sixth annual Faversham Nautical Festival and to delight in Faversham's nautical heritage.

    Residents and visitors can see the many beautiful, and mainly traditional vessels that will be moored in the upper regions of Faversham Creek. Some will be alongside the quays and jetty, while others lie at anchor. There will be Thames Sailing Barges, Dutch Barges, tugs, smacks, gaffers and many other big and small boats. The vessels will be ‘dressed overall’ making a colourful display and some owners may invite you on board.

    On the Town Quay, there is the Sea Cadets’ medieval warehouse TS Hazard. There will be information stalls, exhibitions, the music stand, a bar-b-cue and a beer tent. This will be the place to socialize, relax and enjoy listening to the many live musicians who will play shanties and other traditional music throughout both days. Visitors can delight in a walk along the unspoilt creek winding through beautiful fields, saltings and interesting boatyards out to the Swale while observing the wild life on the creek. Alternatively they can enjoy a walk around our interesting and historic town along with a visit to the Fleur de Lis museum.

    On the Front Brents, on the opposite side of the Creek, there will be many stalls of various kinds. For children there will a bouncy castle, ice creams face painting and many more entertainments for young people.

    Faversham Hop Festival
    1st September 2018 - 2nd September 2018

    Over the festival weekend we have over 60 bands and performers providing 70 hours of live music across 5 stages and entertainment via the 15 sides showcasing Morris and dance. Our 40 volunteers work over 600 hours in the lead up to and during the event, making sure that every one of the 40000 festival-goers has a great time. In total, it costs nearly £70000 to stage the Hop Festival each year. Did you know that if each person attending donated just £1 we'd be well on our way to achieving that?

    Faverham Hop Festival is a not for profit organisation so if you think that all that entertainment is worth the price of a cuppa then please help us maintain this great festival.

    Visit the website to Donate!

    Set in the beautiful medieval heart of Faversham, this lively and popular event recalls the traditional festivities associated with the hop harvest and celebrates the town’s unrivalled hop heritage. Now one of the largest free street festivals in the south east, the event boasts plenty to see and do throughout the weekend with entertainment including live music on 5 stages, arts & crafts, Morris Dancers, street performers and processions.

    In addition, we have the Hop Blessing and a traditional parade through the town. There are also special tours of Shepherd Neame - Britain’s oldest brewer, a home of the hop exhibition in The Old Brewery Store, a traditional funfair and family area plus a street market full of stalls and a fantastic array of Kentish food and drink – including beer produced in the town, local cider and Kentish apple juice.
