Landing of the Oysters

Date:Saturday 21st July, 2018

Location:Long Beach

Head to the beach for high tide! The oysters are arriving! The event signals the official start of the Festival when a symbolic haul of oysters is landed on the beach, complete with traditional costume and yokes. The oysters are received by the Lord Mayor of Canterbury and blessed by the clergy… let the festivities begin!

As the philosopher Jagger once said:
“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes…”
Whitstable Harbour returns.
