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

Growing up in Thanet, Dreamland was something of an institution. When the summer holidays rolled around we would forget about school and spend our days either on the beach or in the arcades, and save our pocket money to go to Dreamland. Someone's birthday? Dreamland. Bank holiday? Dreamland. Some days we could afford wristbands and we'd go on every ride at least twice, other days we'd grab a few tokens and just experience the Scenic Railway, screaming as we went round for the hundredth time that month.

Since Dreamland's grand reopening last year I've been hesitant to go. I know that probably sounds bad, but it is not necessarily for the reason you might think. I was overjoyed to hear that Dreamland was being resurrected and have been in full support of it the entire time. I was saddened when Sands Heritage Ltd went into administration, and my column a month ago addressing that issue was not in any way a criticism of Dreamland itself. My reason for not attending the park thus far has been, to be honest, a fear that it will not live up to my childhood memories.

Dinner Plans

Love is in the air, apparently. It’s that time of year when you are expected to show someone how much you care about them by getting them a generic card and/or a bunch of flowers from the petrol station and then taking them to dinner.

In keeping with the day in question, here’s a list of some of Thanet’s most interesting, unique and well-recommended restaurants to take your loved one.

Thanet puts pen to paper

Today is shaping up to be a day for writers.

Writer's Block

First there is a Novel Writers gathering in Ramsgate for folks taking part in NaNoWriMo (Gerrys Coffee & Art House, 4pm to 6pm) and later (7:30pm) in Broadstairs Thanet Creative Writers are meeting at The Chapel. In theory a person could make both of them.

Are you the type of person to express yourself well with words?
