Margate is the place to be on the evening of
Friday 30 November.
The Thanet Visitor Information Centre
will be welcoming shoppers to their special shopping evening at The
Droit House from 5pm to 8pm.
Delicious free samples and tasters will be
available from local producers such as Quex Barn, Quex Foods, The
Chocolate Pod and Little Stour Orchard.
Plus there will be a free prize draw with the
following great prizes to be won:
This VIC shopping event has been timed to
complement a range of late night events taking place in the
original seaside town on 30 November, as well as late night opening
of many shops in Margate’s Old Town.
All of this will be taking place on the night
that Turner Contemporary Christmas light switch-on takes place. A
gospel choir will kick off the festive period in style, and the art
gallery will also be open late to celebrate the finale of Maria
Nepomuceno's Tempo para Respirar (Breathing Time), which has been
exhibited since September 2012.
Thanet District Council’s Cabinet Member for
Community Services, Cllr Iris Johnston said: “It’s important for
the VIC to be part of a town-wide festive event. Staying open until
8pm will give busy shoppers a fantastic opportunity to come along
to see the wide range of gifts we have on offer, as well as giving
out free samples of the delicious local produce we stock.
“It’s also a great way to remind everyone of
the broad range of services and assistance the team can provide to
locals, as well as visitors. This includes information and bookings
for local accommodation, attractions, transport, entertainment and
events. We’re also really excited to promote some lovely
gifts, many of which are produced in Thanet or Kent.”
The Visitor Information Centre is open all
year round. Opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday 10am-5pm, during
October to March and open seven days a week between April and
September. The staff are here to answer all of your questions and
queries about the range of activities to help plan your trips
around Thanet, as well as selling a range of gifts and souvenirs.
