Keep calm and carry on... planning your summer of al fresco fun is the message from the organisers of one of the county's biggest events.
The organisers of the Leeds Castle Concert, which will be held at the castle near Maidstone on Saturday, July 11, are still going full steam ahead in their preparations for the event, which attracts some 10,000 people for its outdoor summer celebration.
Despite the worries of the potential cancellation of events as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, managers at Leeds Castle are still keen to show they are gearing up for this year's event, which celebrates the roaring 20s.
Organisers of the Leeds Castle Concert, Heritage Events said:"We are looking forward to warmer times and enjoying the traditional best of British summer.
"Kent’s biggest and best outdoor patriotic party returns to Leeds Castle this July, with a Spitfire flyover, firework finale and the stunning Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performing classics like God Save the Queen, come and wave your flags. This really is an event not to be missed.”
