The Rochester Sweeps Festival is the largest May Day celebration of its kind in the country
Medway Council recreates this traditional, colourful and lively festival each year. Local chimney sweeps, morris sides and folk groups from all over the UK join in the fun.
It takes a special kind of event to last more than a quarter of a century. Medway's Sweeps Festival, with its incredible selection of morris sides, entertainers, an ever-expanding range of activities and worldwide popularity, goes from strength to strength each year.
