Free Maidstone Proms in the Park back this bank holiday

By Angela Cole

After house builder Weston Homes stepped in to support Maidstone's popular Proms in the Park, they were rescued for this year and come to Whatman Park on Saturday, May 25.

Now free to enter again, the show runs from 3pm to 8pm led by Master of Ceremonies, David Zachary.

It features the 40-strong Invicta Jazz kicking off proceedings.
