Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival for Brogdale Collections
Every year I visit Brogdale Collections in Faversham, Kent, to view one of the world's finest collection of fruit trees, enjoy picnics under the cherry blossoms and photograph their annual spring Japanese cultural festival.
Highlights include tea ceremony demonstrations, taiko drumming, martial arts, and bonsai displays. Visitors can browse the exhibition housing traditional Japanese artefacts, dress in kimono, try their hand at origami or calligraphy, and chat with the Medway Japan Society. Delicious Japanese snacks such as sushi, hot noodles and chilled green tea are also available to enjoy, along with Brogdale's home-made cherry lemonade and ice-cream.
