What’s on

Events galore in Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate

World-class art exhibitions, sports contests, festivals celebrating music and great food and drink. The diaries of Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate events merit a closer look. 

Year-round, it's well worth a short break around some of Kent's best events. At Margate's Turner Contemporary look out for international exhibitions, talks, gallery tours and art workshops. 

Don't-miss annual events including Broadstairs Folk Week; seven days of top-quality acts all over town, three-day Broadstairs Food Festival sees gourmets flock to the resort and June's Broadstairs Dickens Festival is a literary-led, costume character-filled, Victoriana-infused delight.

The sand-dusted Margate Masters volleyball tournament overflows with top players, July's, Ramsgate Week sees international sailors competing in a regatta to rival Cowes and the Ramsgate Festival brings a feast of theatre, music and dance to town.

August brings an explosion of colour and sound, at Margate’s vibrant, carnival procession snakes through the town over Margate Soul Weekend
