Whitstable Oyster Festival

Whitstable Oyster Festival


Whitstable Oyster Festival

July 24 – 30

Who knew that oysters could inspire such activity? There’s been a celebration since Norman times in this town to mark the safe return of the fishermen and their catch at the end of the oyster season. In addition to lots of lovely local food and drink producers offering their wares for you to try there will be music, dancing, arts and crafts and….ghost-hunting(!), even an oyster-eating challenge for anyone brave enough! Last year’s winner scoffed 18 – I’m sure they are lovely but eeeuuugh that’s good going.

Football Fusion

Bournemouth, August 6-8 

A new one, this is a national six-a-side tournament for boys, girls and grown-ups, with a variety of extras to keep everyone amused once they have been knocked out. The best bit we like the sound of is the Wagwam where mums and girlfriends can drink champagne, not before having a good look at Jamie Redknapp who will be there along with other footie stars and legends including Jack Charlton and Geoff Hurst. Music in the evening from Ms Dynamite and the Enemy.

£42.80, children from £10; footballfusion.co.uk
