 Kent Coastal Week is Coming Soon

Kent Coastal Week gets underway towards the end of October (27/10 – 4/11) with the action really starting in Ramsgate on Sunday 28th.  From 10am, head to the Customs House building where you can pick up a brochure (link for brochure included at the end of this blog) on events taking place through the week.  There will be over 50 stalls in the street (Harbour Parade) and entertainment from Ramsgate Arts Group will include a 2 hour tour around town celebrating Ramsgate’s history with poetry and music (tours start at 11am and 2pm).  A storytelling treasure trail for children (accompanied by an adult) will head off from The Obelisk at 1.30pm and places can be booked online at www.thanetcoast.org.uk/whats_on.aspx for free. 

If you fancy a Ramble Round Ramsgate where you can learn all about Ramsgate’s famous WWII Air Raid Precaution Tunnels then make sure you are outside the Sailor’s Church at the harbour at 11am and if you miss Sunday’s tour, they are repeating them on 31st October and 4th November at the same time.  I went on this fascinating over ground tour of Ramsgate’s Tunnels during the summer where they were bought back to life by the very informative Peter Burrough.  Peter is part of the team responsible for securing over £50k to get the plans for these very important tunnels up and running as a tourist attraction.  His dedication and passion for the historical importance of these air raid shelters is obvious when he recounts the history of Wartime Ramsgate and he does it all for free (although donations are gratefully received).  If you want to know more about the tunnels and fancy an ‘underground tour’, then click on this link www.ramsgatetunnels.org where there is a short video explaining the past, present and future of the tunnels.
