175th Birthday Bash

Celebrate 175 years of Macknade during our big birthday bash on September 17th!

Can you believe we're really that old?! With six generations of family business under our belts, we thought is was about time we celebrated (and what better excuse than an end of summer party!)

Taking place in our Faversham Food Village, our birthday party will kick off at midday and finish at 9pm, with a line-up of foodie fun and cracking tunes, perfect for the entire family.

Highlights include live music, kids craft activities, street food & speciality drinks, plus tasting & masterclasses with select local suppliers.

The event is FREE TO ATTEND and you can drop in at any time throughout the day. Parking is available on-site, or we're only a short 15 minute walk from Faversham station!
