On Town Wharf, home of the Sea Cadets’ medieval building, TS Hazard, there will be stalls, an art exhibition, a music stage, a barbecue, oysters and champagne and a beer tent. This will be the place to socialize, relax and enjoy listening to the many live musicians who will play traditional music from 12 noon. 

On Front Brents, there will be children’s entertainment, including  Punch and Judy, balloons and magic, a bouncy castle and a climbing wall. There  will be a music stage from 12 noon to 6pm, a wide selection of food and drink, and many interesting stalls to browse.

Visitors can enjoy a walk along the unspoilt creek, winding through beautiful fields, saltings and interesting boatyards out to the Swale while observing wildlife on the creek. Alternatively, they can enjoy a walk around the historic town and a visit to its Fleur de Lis museum.

The creek is a short walk from Faversham railway station.
