The Kent Website since 1999
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.
Before attending any event always check the details with the organisers, as you may appreciate we publish all event details in good faith and we're not always in a position to present the most up to the minute news regarding changes and cancellations.
Listings are published free of charge, send submissions to email@example.com, we welcome all event details no matter how big or small, can't always guarantee to publish what we receive. We try and highlight regular annual events and festivals, we publish some links at the foot of this page.
We are unable to publish all the events submitted to us but we welcome interesting entertainment opportunities from all parts of the county no matter how big or small.
