Herne Bay Festival 2023 kicks off in just ...



Featuring for 2023 – Folk Festival, Baytastic, Herne Bay Carnival, Jazz Festival, Music, Fireworks and much, much more!

Each year we strive to support our community and improve the lives of those living within it. Even though the festival is a 5-week summer programme, many of the projects we support continue to be delivered throughout other times of the year.

Herne Bay Festival is for the advancement of the arts of music, performance, literature, visual arts and the education of the public in the culture and heritage of Kent, however, in recent times our focus has also been on supporting our community’s mental & physical health and wellbeing and the growth of our community.

Our umbrella theme for 2023 is “Community In Mind” with a focus on the following areas:-

  • Food For All
  • Mental and Physical Health and Wellbeing
  • Herne Bay’s Wider Community
  • Volunteering
  • The Environment Around Us
  • Energy Efficiency

We would love to hear from, and work with, local organisations that support any of these areas. Please contact us by clicking on the button below.
