The Kent Miners’ Festival is back on Saturday and Sunday 27th to 28th August (from 10am), and Kent & Sussex branch has booked a pitch in the heritage and community exhibitors marquee.
It takes place at Kent Mining Museum, Betteshanger Park, Sandwich Rd, Deal CT14 0BF (near to the former Betteshanger Colliery) and there is more information at this website http://www.kentminersfestival.org.uk
Comrades are welcome to come and join us there.
Parking will be available on site or there will be a free shuttle bus service from Deal town centre. The site is in a rural location about 3 miles from the town centre and the nearest Railway Station, which is Deal. See the website above for transport details (the bus stop in Queen St is just outside the station, turn right from the station building and pass the traffic lights and a large pub on the corner to find it. Please note there is a bus stop on both sides of Queen St and the shuttle is a Thomsetts Coach not a Stagecoach bus).
Food and drink (beer!) will be available on site.
