The Kent Website since 1999
The Kent Big Day out is a really brilliant scheme, we expect it to get even bigger and better in 2014. We have successfully applied for tickets in 2012 and 2011. Nearly 80,000 ballot entries were received in 2012.
The ballot website www.mykentbigweekend.co.uk goes live in January, there are over 17,000 free tickets on offer to more than 100 locations and events.t). My Kent Big Weekend takes place in March.
You simply apply for tickets by selecting where you'd like to go from the participating attractions. If you're successful in the ballot you'll be notified by email. Print off the tickets and visit the attraction for free. As far as we at Yourcounty is concerned this is a transparent attempt by local attractions to get some early season promotion and receive a bumper audience through their doors in the early part of the year. Visitors that have had a good experience are likely to spread the word. Some attractions may also be able to benefit from visitor expenditure in cafe, gift shops etc.
From the consumers point of view it is a ballot so you may not get tickets to your first choice venue or indeed any tickets if the offer is oversubscribed. We have received tickets in previous years but that's no guarantee for the future. What have you got to lose?
Over 120 took part in 2012 including:
