As you may know the Hythe Festival is held every alternate even year. It has been running for many years and the aim is to provide a variety of entertainment for all age groups and all interests for the people of Hythe and its visitors. The festival brings thousands of people to Hythe, which is of massive benefit to business in our area. Many of the events held are free of charge or at a nominal cost. In order to continue with this, we rely on the ongoing support of sponsors, both old and new.
The festival will open on Saturday 7th July 2018 with a colourful parade in the high street followed by a ‘fun for all’ event on Hythe Green. In 2018, the event on the green will be bigger than ever before, spanning 2 days. There will be music, dancing, crafts, vehicles both new and vintage on display. In addition there will be a variety of excellent food and drink for those attending. The wonderful Canal Bank Concert will again take place on Saturday 14th July. There will be an Art Trail and a Heritage trail, in line with our new focus on Arts and Heritage for this and future festivals. St Leonard’s Church will also be hosting many fantastic concerts and we will be working alongside JAM on the Marsh and local schools, to provide a wide range of entertainment for all.
