  3. Hop n' Harvest festival, 2 men with hops and beer.
    We are looking forward to the return of this fabulous, family friendly festival in 2020. Visitors can join in with the traditional hand-picking of hops, as well as meeting historical characters from Kent’s past. You can also sample up to 40 varieties of locally brewed ales and ciders while absorbing the fantastic live music programme. Take time to visit one of the last working coal-fired oast houses in the country, and witness the hop-making process from picking to drying. There’s also fantastic entertainment from the Pearly Kings and Queens. There will be plenty of live and local musical entertainment from established Kent acts alongside some bright upcoming stars too.
