Music, food stalls and exciting events planned for the Marina Curve in Dover

The summer season has arrived at Marina Curve and brings with it a new and exciting mix of activities and entertainment on the Dover waterfront. The waterfront development will be packed with activities, entertainment and fantastic food stalls serving delicious local produce throughout the summer season.

The Marina Curve opened in 2021 and transformed the waterfront, and this year it’s really set to come into its own. There will be a regular program of events where local residents and berth holders can enjoy a variety of shows, with the iconic White Cliffs and magnificent Dover Castle backdrop.

A wide selection of food and drink will be available, with outlets such as Big Pan Foods serving delicious South African street food, and Breakwater Brewery, a local micro-brewery that has set up a whole new corner living room for the summer season. .

A permanent stone-baked pizza stand also joins the concession roster, while another new addition is Planet Earth Kitchen, already a cult vegan restaurant in Folkestone. They will set up to serve residents and visitors to Dover in the coming weeks.

To celebrate Jubilee weekend, the Marina will host the special Platinum Jubilee Music at The Curve on Thursday, June 2, which will see live music played from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Performances include Marilyn Sky, 1-4 p.m. and The Swing Rats, 4:30-7:30 p.m. Starting at 9:30 p.m., there will be a Platinum Jubilee Lighthouse Lighting Ceremony in Clock Square.

Other artists performing on the Marina Curve include Andy Twyman, who on June 19 will perform his unique and moving one-man act in Clocktower Square.

The pleasant atmosphere at the water’s edge will also be reinforced by the arrival of the boats at the New Marina, the advent of the summer season coinciding with a trial period for the development.

Chris Windsor, Port of Dover Marina Manager, said: “We are delighted to begin a temporary trial period of maintaining boats in the new marina. Boats have mainly been moved due to dredging requirements in the Wellington Dock during the summer period and this aligned well with an appetite among berth holders to try out the new marina.

“This won’t be a permanent move until the exterior wave wall has been installed and tested to ensure year-round comfort, but we’re delighted that berth-holders can take advantage of the amenities during summer months.” Together with local residents, they will be able to soak up the improved atmosphere of the curve and get a sense of what the area will be like once the transition is complete. »
