Music over the weekend:

more details of the festival:



"The main aim of the Festival is to raise awareness of Faversham’s nautical heritage; anyone who - by boat - has negotiated the unspoilt, winding creek through beautiful fields and salting and interesting boatyards will be enchanted to finally arrive in – and be able to explore - our historic town.

Residents and visitor can see the many beautiful, mainly traditional and vessels that have been invited to moor over the weekend in the upper regions of the Creek; some will be able to tie up to the quays and the jetty, others may anchor where possible. There will be Thames Sailing Barges, Dutch Barges, tugs, smacks and many smaller boats. The vessels will be ‘dressed overall’ which makes a colourful display.

On the Town Quay, including the Sea Cadets’ medieval building TS Hazard, there will be information stalls, exhibitions, the music stage and the 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.

On the Front Brents, on the opposite side of the Creek, there will be stalls of various kinds and where local artists will show and sell their craft. For children there will a bouncy castle, ice cream and much more."
