What's On In Kent

The Kent Diary is the essential, eclectic guide to what's on in Kent over the coming months. It is constantly updated and highlights some of the best local entertainment opportunities. It's been running for 12 years and aims to provide a mosaic of experiences taking place over the next ten to twelve weeks. The Diary has always juxtaposed summer fetes alongside symphony orchestras and rock bands with ploughing contests. Our ethos is that all of us are interested in a range of things and may even be tempted to try something new should we come across a tempting opportunity.
