It's all happening in Faversham

Up and coming Faversham events are all taking shape and certainly judging by the hive of activity we are in for a treat.


We are delighted that for the second year running Rachel of the Hat Shop, West Street is championing the Hat Festival again this year. Last year it was fabulous to see so many people wearing hats and businesses dressing their windows in the spirit of the Hat Festival.

The Hat Parade starts at 11am from the Hat Shop, West Street with prizes to be won for a variety of hat categories.
All details can be seen on

This year we celebrate the 20th Faversham Car Show, the fourth Transport weekend which now incorporates the Car Show.
This free event attracts visitors from far and wide and is also very popular with Faversham residents. Saturday the vintage buses offer free bus rides which delights the young and old, and over 300 vehicles fill our town centre on the Sunday, plenty for every enthusiast to enjoy.

The event takes place on the 16th/17th May and more details can be found here


National Magna Carta celebrations are taking place this year marking the 800th year since the sealing of the Magna Carta by King John. Faversham is fortunate to own a Magna Carta and is very much part of the celebrations and all details of local organised events can be found on

We are looking forward to the Magna Carta Weekend on the 13th/14th June, when the town will enjoy lots of medieval activities, food and celebrations. We have heard there will Barons and Knights in town and the opportunity to try your hand at archery.
