The Easter food festival in Broadstairs is well underway with junior and adult planting sessions alongside hands-on craft and cookery workshops and, of course, lots of food.

Each year, the free-to-enter festival brings together almost 100 of the region’s best artisan food and drink producers. They offer an eclectic array of local and regional delicacies, seasoned with a peppering of workshops and demonstrations.

The festival’s Easter bonnets are going regal for 2024 with drop-in sessions of making paper crowns, suitable for even the youngest family member.

All the children’s sessions are free-to-attend.

  1. Don’t want to spoil the party but living in a street near the seafront isn’t particularly nice.Litter everywhere,half drunk glasses of local beers,napkins ,coffee cups,food just thrown in the street.Might also be because all the litter bins are full before midday. Knowing TDC the side streets are never swept and haven’t been in the 11 years I have lived here.Oh and just to add all the yellow lines are parked on as well as our drives being blocked off.Well done TDC for your organisational skills.

  2. I agree about the litter.The town was full of litter last night with every single bin overflowing.I was embarrassed for my guests.
