culture and entertainment
Regular events, carnivals and festivals are organised across Swale mainly by local organisations and community groups for residents and visitors to enjoy and participate in from the well established Faversham Hop Festival to the second New Day Festival at Mount Ephraim in August.
A variety of shows and entertainment can be enjoyed in Swale at some very interesting venues. From Bluetown Heritage Centre which hosts the Criterion Music Hall and Sheppey Little Theatre in Sheerness to the Arden Theatre in Faversham and The Avenue Theatre in Sittingbourne.
Night life can be found across the area in clubs such as Layzells Club in Minster for the young at heart to quiet pubs such as The Plough Inn at Stalisfield or The Three Tuns at Lower Halstow for those who want a relaxing evening drink in the countryside.
