Tenterden Christmas Market 2018

Tenterden Christmas Market takes place on Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th November 2018 and the Kent & East Sussex Railway will be providing 'Park & Ride' shuttle trains from Rolvenden-Tenterden Town. Parking at Rolvenden is at Rother Valley Timber, adjacent to Rolvenden K&ESR station.
There are no further details at present - I will try to update this thread as more details emerge - but it is worth noting that last year's trains were charged by donation, and I believe they only ran on the Friday and Saturday of the event.
Watch this space!

Thank goodness they've learned from the experience of a few years back, when Tenterden's Christmas Market coincided with K&ESR's first Santa Special weekend. Talk about chaos...
