There may be no ‘r' in the month but that' no reason not to celebrate. Whitstable's annual event actually dates back to a thanksgiving festival marked by the town during the Norman era, with the industrious folk of the town choosing to live it up during their down time, the close season for oysters which happens to coincide with July 25, the feast day of St.James of Compostella, patron saint of oysters. Need we remind you that the absence of ‘r' in July does not mean oysters are off the menu; in fact rock oysters are good to eat now. Natives kick off in September.
