Back by popular demand is the hotly contested Festival Quiz, with Whitstable’s own Egg Head Barry Sullivan setting the questions.

– all proceeds go to local charities, so as well as being a bit of fun it benefits those who need a little help.

Plus you can bring your own nibbles and refreshments to stimulate those little grey cells!
