Latest News

We always knew that this year would be a bit smaller than usual. It is the first festival since Covid, the first run by the Kent Mining Heritage Foundation and we only had 6 weeks to plan it! But we are focusing on what is at the heart of the festival, and always has been, the mining community.

  • The mining heritage centres will be attending with their displays, as well as other community organisations
  • There will be a bar and food options, the perfect backdrop to socialise and catch up
  • There will be a free bus service, which will cover stops in Deal, Aylesham and Elvington. Details will follow.
  • Sadly, on this occasion, the bands and choir were unable to attend (next year!) but there will be live music, face painting and family friendly activities.

If you would like a stall or know an organisation who would like to attend, its not too late. Just download the form for either a craft or business stall or for an organisation or exhibitor.
