Thanet Coast Project Easter Events

Thanet district Council press release

Sea monsters, rockpool rambles and a journey back millions of years in time are just some of the events being put on by the Thanet Coast Project this Easter.

The Sea Monster Tale-Trail will discover some of the real sea monsters that live along Thanet’s coast, giving you the chance to create your own monstrous creature on a storytelling walk with Emily Parrish. Suitable for children, the walk takes you across Ramsgate Main Sands and the Sea Garden on Thursday 16 April. It starts outside the Maritime Museum building at 2pm and lasts for two hours.

Captain Crabby’s Rockpool Rambles will take you hunting for sealife in the rocks and pools, with the expert Captain Crabby as your guide. There are two Rockpool Rambles, one on Tuesday 14 April from 9am to 11am, exploring St. Mildred’s Bay and the following day, between 9.30am and 11.30am at Stone Bay.

You can also get stuck into a hands-on exploration of the rocks and fossils of our coast with the Rock Doc, with a two hour tour around Thanet’s shores on Thursday 16 April between 10.30am and 12.30pm at Minnis Bay.

Funded by the Big Lottery, all of the events are being run for free as part of the Thanet Coast Project’s Beach Play programme and are open to the whole family.

Naomi Biggs, Thanet Coast Project Education Officer, said: “The school holidays are the perfect time for the whole family to explore our unique coastline and find out more about the wonderful array of marine life that lives there. These events are fun ways of learning more about the area we live in and why the Thanet coastline is so special. It’s a great way of enjoying time together as a family, as these activities are suitable for all ages.”

For all events, make sure you dress appropriately for the weather with suitable footwear for the terrain.
