Eel meat again
Things to do, places to go thei wekend
Saturday 16 September 1995
Margate, "the lungs of London", has always had strong links with the smoke, being a preferred coastal getaway for the capital's residents. Among the festival highlights are firework displays, the Cockney Classic Car Rally and Parade, a London-style market and the longest Lambeth Walk. The town's magnificent 16th-century Tudor House will be open for information for the duration of the celebrations.
Alternatively you can join members of the Original Pearly Kings and Queens Assocation for a few tiddlies and an old-fashioned pub singalong, to the dulcet tones of the Tenet Croakers and the Acker Rejects.
And if you're boracic until the end of the month, worry not - a lot of the events, such as the craft fair and the live music in the market place are free.
