Carpets of Bluebells start to appear in the woodlands of Kent during the April period.

Whats On in April

The clocks have gone forwards and the days are getting longer. The countryside is filling with blossom and new life and it’s a great time to be in Maidstone with some great events and activities to look forward to.

We begin the month on Easter Sunday and the start of the school holidays. There are lots of Easter trails and fun activities to delight the whole family and you can find all the details in our dedicated Easter section.

For less chocolate-fuelled entertainment, head to the Heritage Transport Show, featuring the South East Bus Festival and a host of vintage vehicles.

Discover 100 years of the West Kent WI in a new exhibition opening at Maidstone Museum this month. If their good works and handicrafts leave you feeling inspired, why not join in the Sustainable Crafts course starting on the 20th, and learn how to make beautiful and useful things from the stuff you have around your home.

To celebrate St George’s Day, a massive smoke-breathing dragon called Flame will be coming to the Museum, along with his little friend Bunsen, the baby dragon. Dare you come and meet them?

There are a host of great comedy acts at the Hazlitt Theatre this month, including Alun Cochrane and Angela Barnes, as well as rising talents Jarlath Regan and John Robins. Paul Gascoigne and Michael Buerk will also be delighting audiences, and there are musical tributes including Beach Boys Smile, Beyond Faith and Jive Talkin’, guaranteed to get your toes tapping.

For music of a different kind, Maidstone Wind Symphony is offering an exciting programme of Russian music in their ‘Revolution’ concert.

If you’re looking for romance, head to Maidstone Museum’s Lates this month and Bag Yourself a Date! Experience speed-dating with a difference…fall for a voice, a gesture, a perfume!

If all this has whetted your appetite, see what else is going on in Maidstone this April.
