Hop Festival

Hop Festival

As our area gets ready for OnBlackheath this weekend, down the road in Kent, it was the Faversham Hop Festival over the weekend.


What started as a small beer festival, has now grown into one of the largest festivals in the south east.

Bill Fowler, events director and Lee Marsh, from Right Guard Security told us how it has grown over the years into a huge street festival from it’s origin as a small local event.
