Strange Days

It is certainly a strange and unnerving time we all find ourselves in; not just in the UK but across the world as we struggle to come to terms with dealing with an invisible threat to our way of life.  I hope that everyone is coping as best they can and finding ways to keep safe and sane!

New Year Fireworks!

Ramsgate will welcome in the new decade with a 15 minute fireworks display from Main Sands at the stroke of midnight.  For safety reasons, we can no longer fire from the harbour so are trialing the main sands this year. Please note that the lower promenade (between Wetherspoon and Ramsgate Tunnels) will be closed for one hour before and after the display and Wetherspoon's terraced areas will also be closed.  The main sands will also be closed between 11pm on 31/12/2019 and 1am on 1/1/2020. The best viewing points will be from the east pier and east cliff promenade.
