Award Winning Park for all to Enjoy

Events in Mote Park

Throughout the year Mote Park provides a very popular venue for a host of events ranging from large outdoor music festivals to wildlife and habitat exploration.

Large Events in Mote Park

Mote Park has proved to be a very popular location with the BBC having initially hosted the Radio 1 Roadshow, which has been successfully followed by Stargazing Events and Cbeebies Mr Bloom.

A number of large music festivals are also staged here, including the Ramblin Man Fair and Big Day Out.

Smaller Events with Walks & Talks

Mote Park has an historic background having previously been the home of the Marsham Family who had the whole park beautifully landscaped.

Since that period wildlife habitats have developed and it now provides a home for an amazing number of species. Many of these are now the subjects of walks and talks, alongside studies to monitor populations.

Walks and talks include the history of Mote Park, water birds, small mammals, wild flowers, trees and bats.

The bat populations here are of significant national importance and whilst capturing them is illegal, specific events with licensed wildlife experts do trap and monitor their species as Kent’s proximity to Europe is key, as is the habitat.

These events are always popular, but places are strictly limited so early booking is essential.

Booking Events

It is strongly recommended that you book in advance for walk and talk events in Mote Park as this enables us to put on additional staff to ensure everyone can hear what is going on and that everyone has a great time.
