A hundred years ago

One hundred years ago Herne Bay was a buzzing seaside town and the place everyone wanted to visit.  The brand new Kings Hall was about to be opened in July by Queen Victoria’s daughter.  There were already three cinemas, The Grand, The Paragon and the Bijou and live entertainment and theatre at the Pier Theatre, Grand Pier Pavilion and Central Hall.  There were concerts, films, plays, comedy and dances and visitors flocked here to have fun.  This summer the town is hosting numerous events celebrating our golden age.  Come and be part of the celebrations.
