A unique collaboration bringing together local choirs to explore the unique heritage of the town and its people. Waterways will explore how the small settlement of Faversham grew at the head of a navigable creek and will celebrate how boatbuilding, brewing, brickmaking and even gunpowder all flourished.
A journey of discovery from Faversham’s grand Victorian station, through the medieval centre of town to the bleak beauty of the Kent marshes.

For 2020 we are planning two weekends with opening events, talks or performances,  on Friday evening. These are community festivals and if you would like your group to be part of the weekend and to put on your own events please contact Harold Goodwin chair@favershamsociety.org

The next planning meeting is on March 17th in the Fleur Hall, off Gatefield Lane, on Tuesday, March 17th at 19:30
This meeting is postponed 
Please come along and encourage others to join us, if you can't make the meeting please send suggestions and plans to chair@favershamsociety.org

Our Plans - check back for more details as the plans come to fruition.

11th & 12th July the Coming of the Railway and Victorian Faversham; the railway, houses, streets, public buildings and the Recreation Ground.

Faversham Railway station will be open for guided tours and there will be photographic exhibitions on the history fo the station, guided walks to view the weighbridge, water tower, the engine shed and the route of the spur line down to Faversham.

Performances of Victorian music and theatre would be welcome and a dance?

The Old Grammar School, the Alexander Centre, the Assembly Rooms and the Purifier will be open and we hope that the Alms Houses will be too along with many of Faversham's Victorian religious buildings and Public Houses. The Police Museum will be open by July.

The Faversham Recreation Ground has been renovated and some of its original features restored. We hope that there will be an illustrated talk on its history and that some traditional games will be played there over the weekend, in particular Goal Running, once very popular in Faversham.
Goal Running revived
Goal Running in Faversham
The Faversham History

18th & 19th July Gunpowder in the town on the marsh and the great explosion – the industrial archaeology, the housing for the workers, the owners and the managers. Over this weekend the Oare Gunpowder Works, the Chart Mill, Gunpowder Room in the Fleur will be open. We hope that Stonebridge Pond and the Westbrook which worked the mills and fed the Stonebridge Pond and the gunpowder archaeology on the Anderson site will be open for guided walks.

We are keen that as many local groups and individuals as possible to join with us in these community festivals. If you have ideas please email chair@favershamsociety.org
