The Railway - Faversham Hop Festival 2018 Information

The Railway 
FAVERSHAM HOP FESTIVAL 2018
The Railway is (as you might expect) opposite the railway station on the corner of Preston Street and Station Road. Its large garden area and car park becomes a great Hop Festival venue with music all weekend. It is a Shepherd Neame pub with a reputation for looking after its beer! The Railway is a popular Hop Festival venue with its large outdoor area, loads of tables and chairs, outside bar and great music. It is also very well organised and despite the large number of people, there is little waiting time to get served (in my experience).

More information on the bands playing at The Railway:


Paragraph 1
"PARAGRAPH 1 IS ONE OF KENT'S MOST DESIRED UP AND COMING LIVE MUSIC BANDS. WE HAVE PERFORMED OUR COVERS AND ORIGINAL LIVE MUSIC ACROSS KENT, INCLUDING THANET, CANTERBURY, SWALE AND THE SOUTH KENT COAST.
We are yet to experience anywhere that is not bouncing off the walls by the time we have finished! We entertain, perform and provide a music experience that can only be matched by perhaps some of the 'top end' performers. We take pleasure in people listening, joining, dancing, singing and participating in our sets."








We Ghosts
"Anglo-Swedish alternative acoustic trio WE GHOSTS formed in 2004 and have done hundereds of gigs a year ever since. Comprising of English singer, songwriter and guitarist John Christopher and Swedish singer Jenny Jonasson (aka J.J.Woodall). They've enchanted audiences in both of their home countries, elswhere in Europe and the U.S- released three EP's and the album “Paranormal activity” in 2006. Their fine blend of vocal harmony plus punchy, rolling acoustic guitar rhythms make for a splendid live show worthy of any stage and their atmospheric, eerie and inventive recordings have been used in soundtracks as well having received frequent airplay."
