Herne Bay Festival 2014

We’re gearing up for yet another amazing Herne Bay Festival. The theme this year is “take to the skies” and we’ve got some fabulous events planned including the annual evening lantern parade, sandcastle competition, Fireworks display, Live music stage and Alfresco ballroom with dance workshops and of course Herne Bay’s Got Talent. As well as this you have been busy creating and organising and we can expect to see loads of great events run by the people of Herne Bay including arts workshops, crab catching competitions, discos, Herne Bay Rocks and the Giant Picnic.

Programme will be available soon.
