Sandwich goes French for Le weekend

Sandwich is host to many exciting events this summer, one being the Open Golf championship in July, but this weekend a two day French festival descends on Sandwich! A market full of street music, family fun events, stalls, song and dance, classic French cars, cycling, French foods, beers and wines.

 The fun doesn’t stop on the Sunday as you can enjoy strolling around the French market, browsing the street stalls and why not try some local ale at the ale and lager tasting session on the Quay Green

 All in all this is a great little festival that can be enjoyed by the whole family, so why not visit Sandwich this weekend for some French Fun!!! Why not stay at The Sanctuary and enjoy the festival in style. Sleeping 4, the apartment has been finished to a high standard and would make an ideal place to holiday in Kent. Just across the road from the sea, with panoramic views of the coast and bird sanctuary from the living room and bedrooms – what more could you ask for!
