    we're going to Margate on Saturday, air show, beer, music ... should be fun:T
  • Broadstairs Folk Week starts tomorrow, it's fantastic.

    Don't do the official camping in central Broadstairs, it's a rip-off (over £500 for the week for a basic pitch in a school field). Find a campsite in Deal/Dover/Sandwich/Ramsgate etc. We're paying £7 per night (inc. electric hook-up, in the garden of a CAMRA award-winning pub).
