For musical fans, Beatles fans, or just fans of a party, this fun-packed weekend has a range of music on display for everyone to enjoy. Soak up the sun’s rays and watch the sun go down over the castle as music takes over the town.
For the 11th year in a row, the Beer & Cider Festival in association with West Kent CAMRA returns to Kent! Taking place in October, this festival brings together live music, great local food suppliers and, of course, alcohol! With a confirmed list of over 200 beers, 40 ciders, as well as a gin & prosecco bar, you can really experience local products while sitting at picturesque Kent train stations or on board steam and heritage diesel trains as they ferry visitors to and fro. This is a great way to explore Kent and to pay a little respect to local and small breweries and food businesses in the area.
For something a little more serene, look no further than Leeds Castle Concert, with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra once again taking to the stage in 2022. The atmosphere inside the gorgeous Leeds Castle in Kent is electric as world-class music fills the air. After the success of last year’s event, the theme will continue to be “Royal Garden Party”, encouraging visitors to strut their stuff in hopes of winning ‘best dressed’! All this and more, including amazing solo performances, a Spitfire flyover, and an incredible fireworks display as the evening draws to a close, this really is an amazing day out for the whole family to enjoy.
