Street Party in Tenterden High Street, 1945

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Government advice concerning gatherings, it is with immense regret that we have postponed our Family Street Party event that was due to be held on Bank Holiday Friday 8th May 2020.

We hope to reschedule the event later in the year
