A Rough Guide to Broadstairs

Broadstairs is one of those parts of Thanet that has an incredible amount to offer but frequently gets overlooked. I'd like to put that right with this post.

One of Thanet's less talked about blogs, The Bay Tree Broadstairs Blog, has a photo-rich overview of some of the Things to do in Thanetwhich, of course, focuses very heavily on things to do in Broadstairs.

Broadstairs hosts at least 5 festivals over the year.

If there are any more, please let me know in the comments below.

In addition to the festivals, I counted four museums and tours.

Again, if I missed any please let me know.

There are also a lot of pubs, and amazing places to eat in Broadstairs. Some, like the Chapel, have unique character, but all have some special to offer. I'm not going to try and list all the places to eat and drink in Broadstairs because I'd be here all day and I do not want to play favourites.

Within a few miles of Broadstairs, there are even more things to do.

  • Revolution Skatepark
  • Ramsgate Tunnels
  • The Horby Visitor Centre (somewhere I've always meant to visit)
  • Kent’s only Computer Museum - Micro Museum
  • Walpole Bay Hotel Museum

The point is, that there is plenty to do in Broadstairs and I think it deserves a bigger mention.

To compile this article I relied on such sources as The Bay Tree Hotel's Guide to Broadstairs, Visit Broadstairs, and Things to do on a rainy day (Broadstairs).

Thanet Group Launch Writing Competition

Thanet Creative Writers launched a contest for writers this week.

The contest called "Writer's Writing Competition" aims to help local writers build up an authorial presence in preperation for one day seeking publication.

The Writing Competition is open to anyone at all but those with a connection to Thanet would be at a significant advantage.

The contest is divided into twelve themes with each theme running for one week. The first theme "What gets me writing?" closes at Midnight on Monday. Thanet Creative Writers are recommending that participants create a free blog account to host their entries and have offered several suggestions.

No sign up is required and you only have to notify Thanet Creative Writers that you have published your entry (and where).

Originally intended as a friendly competition and a way for writers to work together, the competition has attracted outside interest. Since the competition was first announced on Sunday, a donor has already come forward offering a cash prize for the eventual winner.

In response to the heightened interest, Thanet Creative writers have published an FAQ to help writers get the most out of the contest.

Find out more about the Writer's Writing Competition.

Dead Island Poets

This evening the Dead Island Poets will be hosting an event where all are welcome to try out their talents with spoken rhymes.

The event, which runs periodically around Thanet, will take place from 7pm at the Ravensgate Arms. This month Thanet's Poets will be celebrating the work and recently released book of Kent's own Mark Holihan.

There will be an open mic but it is recommended that you book a slot to be sure of getting a chance to show off your rhymes. The event is free to attend and take part in.

In Dreamland

The original content of this post has been removed because the author was a #WhinyLittleBitch with all the maturity of a mayfly and all the depth of a shoe print on dry mud.

Honestly, would a polite email have really hurt you that badly?

This notice exists because Matt is too sarcastic for his own good and is not always so mature either.

This notice replaced the previous content automatically using a search and replace query directly in the SQL engine. If the mayfly in question has any further complaints he can stick them where the sun shines not.

Or he can try and sue me but he will lose.

Come at me bro.

Seb Reilly absolutely insists all his guest posts for Thanet Star are a product of our imagination. We don't like bullies and have removed all trace of his "contributions"
