Planet Thanet Easter Beer Festival 2009

Planet Thanet Easter Beer Festival 2009

Yesterday was the first day of the 2009 Planet Thanet Easter Beer Festival and I am still alive today to tell you about it which is a good thing.

Kasabian at Margate Winter Gardens

I bought my ticket today to go and see Kasabian at the Margate Winter Gardens on 23rd March. Yes that is a Monday but what better way to try and reclaim the weekend than by going to a gig.

Today, 25th November 2008, work is set to start on The Turner Contemporary, Margate?s new art gallery. This should be great news for the area and something to rejoice, but for those of you familiar with the scheme will know that it has been fraught with problems and has faced huge criticism from the local [...]
