If you are looking for something to do this evening the Ramsgate Festival closes with a parade and fire show this evening (July 30)

Despite the disappointment of the 300ft waterslide being cancelled the show goes on and organisers hope to finish the festival on a positive note.

The nine-day event has included workshops, opera on the beach, a pirate day, talks and exhibitions across the town and the End of the Pier show.
