If you walk by the Old Fire Station on a Tuesday evening and hear cries for help interceded with  lots of laughter don’t be alarmed, there’s nothing sinister going on just members of the society busy rehearsing Murder in the Marsh  (and having a lot of fun whilst doing so).

This promises to be an enjoyable and light hearted evening with a different ending each night. Bring your own refreshments; sit and just sit back and be entertained whilst trying to  work out the all important question – ‘Who did it?’ Will your table win the prize for guessing, I mean cleverly deducting, correctly?

We need to keep fundraising to be able to support all the community projects we do so  please come along and support this event; tickets are just £8 for members and £10 for non members.

QUIZ night on Saturday 22nd APRIL 7 for 7.30pm at Chichester Memorial Hall (SOLD OUT)


Our first event in 2023!

Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum famously explored The History of the World in 100 Objects. Join historian and curator Martin Crowther, as we undertake a similar challenge for Kent, uncovering the fascinating stories of museum artefacts from east and west of the Medway.

Our next event is our 60th Anniversary Ball on Fri 25th November 2022 – definitely a date for your diary. Further details and how to get tickets to follow shortly.

SUMMER GARDEN PARTY on the 7th August 2022 – all tickets have been SOLD OUT.

For upcoming events please see our annual events programme 2022 tab.

If you enjoyed our Church tour in 2000, you will enjoy this one even more!

And if you couldn’t get a seat on the last trip (which sold out very quickly), you can make up for it now…

The feedback from the last trip was 100% positive – (“a lot of smiling faces”) and we have been asked to put on another trip since then – so here it is.

FOUR different churches to visit, again with the informative and entertaining John Hendy of The Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust who has a wealth of experience on the Churches on the Marsh.

You will come away having learnt the most amazing unimaginable facts about the churches, having had a thoroughly enjoyable day.

We will visit two churches in the morning and then stop for lunch at the Star Inn, St Mary in the Marsh where a ploughman’s lunch will be provided.  Time for an unhurried meal and drink, before the final two and back to Sandgate.  Please advise of any dietary requirements on booking.

If you would like to book your seats now, please email us on and be prepared to have a very pleasant day!
