What's On in December

December is the perfect time to meet up with friends and family and enjoy some quality time together. There are Christmas parties to attend and much shopping to be done to secure that must-have present! Whilst there are lots of Christmas-themed activities taking place in Maidstone this December, there are also plenty of other things to see and do this month too.

Get the month off to a spine-tingling start; join the Maidstone Museum team for their Lates: Scream Night and watch a classic Hammer horror movie – Dracula A.D. 1972. Sink your teeth into some delicious snacks and drinks available to buy from the museum café and enjoy free entry to the Scream & Scream Again exhibition on the night. The exhibition closes the following day, so it’s your last chance to catch this fantastic celebration of the golden age of British horror.

There are several new exhibitions opening at the Museum this month including ‘Concealed’, a selection of works by the ‘Art Textiles: Made in Britain’ group, together with invited artists. The artists will also be in the gallery on Saturday 16 December to introduce themselves and talk about their work. Nell Weatherley will be exhibiting in the Café Gallery with her unique fusion of watercolour and textile art.

Discover the Era of the Great House Party at Leeds Castle and learn more about the reasons it is often referred to as the ‘ladies castle’ in a fascinating talk.

December is a time for fun and laughter and that’s certainly guaranteed at the Hazlitt Theatre as ‘Jongleurs on the Road’ returns. Featuring the brightest and funniest acts on the current UK comedy circuit, it promises an evening of live comedy at its best.

Once all the festivities are over, throw on your hats and scarves, pull on your wellies and walk off the Christmas pudding as you explore the Winter Trail at Leeds Castle or take a stroll around one of our beautiful parks.

Lots of hotels and attractions offer parties and celebrations for families and friends over the Christmas period as well as the ubiquitous New Year festivities to help you end the year in spectacular style. Check our Special Offers page for details of festive dining and party packages.
