<<A2 Coast bound (North Quadrant) Weekend of 30 August to 2 September – ALL TRAFFIC: Traffic on coast bound the M2 will be diverted at junction 7 to continue north along the A299 towards the Highstreet interchange. Traffic then will be diverted at the A299 Highstreet interchange to head south bound on the A299 to exit at junction 7 of the M2 to join the coast bound A2 East bound where the diversion ends. Coast bound traffic looking to cross Brenley Corner roundabout from the A2 Canterbury Road will join the above diversion from the Coast bound on-slip road at junction 7 of the M2.>>
We think this will only affect people coming from Canterbury/Dover direction who will be fine on the way into Faversham but on their return journey will be diverted onto the A299 as far as the two petrol stations on the Thanet way then over the A299 via Plumpudding Lane back onto it and back up to Brenley. It’s only a small section of Brenley that will be closed. Anyone coming east bound on M2 can still come off at J6 and A2 is unaffected as far as we are aware. Please see www.highwaysengland.co.uk for any further clarification.
|Set in the beautiful medieval heart of Faversham, this lively and popular event recalls the traditional festivities associated with the hop harvest and celebrates the town’s unrivalled hop heritage. Now one of the largest free street festivals in the south east, the event boasts plenty to see and do throughout the weekend with entertainment including live music on 5 stages, arts & crafts, Morris Dancers, street performers and processions.|
|In addition, we have the Hop Blessing and a traditional parade through the town. There are also special tours of Shepherd Neame - Britain’s oldest brewer, a home of the hop exhibition in The Old Brewery Store, a traditional funfair and family area plus a street market full of stalls and a fantastic array of Kentish food and drink – including beer produced in the town, local cider and Kentish apple juice.|
