A huge thanks from all of us to everyone that came in 2014, especially those that popped a pound in a collecting bucket, camped or parked at the festival village, bought a wristband, programme or something from our merchandising stall.
With over 50 bands, dance acts, fairground, street parades and performances, circus workshops, punch and judy shows, magic shows and nearly 60 trading stalls in the streets, we hope you felt you had value for your money. All profits from our online merchandise goes into running the festival so please take a moment to browse the shop for gifts and mementoes available all year round.
NEW FOR 2014 – as it was our Silver anniversary we featured various exhibitions and activities celebrating the heritage of the hop industry in the Faversham area, which extends back over 800 years. We also introduced our new mascot “Harry the Hop” who featured in a number of the activities for our younger visitors including the Harry The Hop Activity Tent, staffed and sponsored by L. Jays Attic Superheroes. Our Festival Village at the Abbey School saw development, providing music and entertainment for our camping community and others.
We would like to thank Shepherd Neame, who were once again our main Festival partners, and who provided invaluable support to help us deliver the rich mix of entertainment for which the festival has become renowned.
Please look through the website at regular intervals as new information will be coming online all the time.
See you in September 2015!
