Not an event held on the Hoo Peninsula, but certainly one that involves many of its residents, either as participants or as visitors. I thought I would give the 3-day Dickens Summer Festival a mention on this blog. I went along with my family yesterday afternoon (Saturday), following a busy morning on the Hoo Peninsula – visiting pubs, shops and other places of interest!
It’s great seeing so many people dressed-up in their Victorian finery in celebration of Charles Dickens. I believe the festival started in 1978 and is now attended by people from across Medway, across Kent, across the Country and, according to one gentleman I met yesterday, from across the World, which I can easily believe!
It was yet another fine event and everyone taking-part deserves heartfelt congratulations for making it such a fun experience for all those attending.
