Kent welcomes the summer!
Here at Need A Space self-storage we love Kent and we think our customers should be aware of all the great things going on in the summer. Luckily when we are not working we can enjoy the delights and thrills of some major towns down here in the south east of England.
All tourist attractions, Herne bay, Faversham Whitstable and Canterbury all offer that historical dynamic which allows visitors and holiday makers to get lost in the cobble stones and culture of olde-worlde Britain and enjoy all the modern trappings of good food, live music, and a delightful welcome. We like to get on top of what’s going on in and around us so they can enjoy the towns as much as we do when they are here visiting our self-storage units!
And of course, Canterbury needs no introduction. Thanks to the magnificent Cathedral, stunning university, Tudor houses and shopping areas, visitors to the city can find themselves walking in a medieval world at the same time as being able to access all their needs and trendy cultural stuff super-easy. As may be expected Canterbury comes to life in the summer and there is a lot going on – so let’s have a look!
Following closely on the heels of Glastonbury (and wasn’t that a success!), Canterbury Cathedral is hosting its own extraordinary musical event. Themed as a “Summer Party Night” on the 5th July, lucky participants can enjoy the wonders of the historical backdrop while listening to high-profile local band “Soul and partaking in a whole lot of fine food and drink to brighten the evening.
More sporty than musically minded? No worries. Kent cricket gets into its own at the beginning of July as they take on Warwickshire in the Specsavers cup at the spitfire ground, St. Lawrence.

There are tons of fun things to do in neighbouring Whitstable. Apart from it being such a famous scenic seaside town in its own right, if you have sea legs, then don’t miss out on a trip on the Greta Barge. Originally built in the late 19th century, stepping on this old working ship will transport you back over 100 years!

Faversham offers just about everything a family could wish for – from arts and music and exhibitions to markets, fairs and fetes to walks, rides and tours. With great places to partake of local fayre, you can enjoy the nautical festival on 06th and 7th July or the Faversham beer festival on the 26th to the 28th July.
Herne bay has a selection of music, craft markets, pier events and theatre events to choose from. On 5th July you can get to see local band Hullabaloo in the theatre in the Park; then there’s the Herne Bay bandstand gift and craft market on 6th July; and why not sit back and enjoy the smooth music of the fabulous lounge Swingers in the evening of the 6th – on the pier!

This is only a taster but remember if you live outside of the area and you have units with Need A Space self-storage, don’t think of your visit as tedious work. Why not make a day of it and enjoy a real day out in Kent!
