Parklife once a year in Maidstone means a sun-soaked afternoon with the family listening to classics.
The annual Proms in the Park returns on the late May bank holiday weekend in Whatman Park.
This year for the first time, charges have been introduced to help pay for putting the event on due to reductions in the budget for Maidstone council-run events.
Being held on Saturday, May 26, the Proms will offer an afternoon of entertainment and live music.
Youngsters will be pleased to see the return of Boogie Monsters and the Punch and Judy Show. There will also be performances by the Hazlitt Youth Theatre and a programme of well known classical and big band works by Maidstone Wind Symphony.
Arranged by Maidstone council and the Hazlitt Theatre, the event runs from mid-afternoon and finishes in the early evening.
Laura Dickson from the council said: “Proms in the Park is an incredibly popular event, welcoming audiences of up to 2,000 people each year. The revenue raised through ticket sales will be vital in supporting the event and ensuring it can continue in future years.”
Tickets cost £7 for adults with under 16s free. To get your tickets click here.
