Mote Park

Award Winning Park for all to Enjoy

What's On in August

The school holidays are in full swing, there is plenty of beautiful sunshine to enjoy and Maidstone offers a host of activities this August. Whether indoors or out, there is something for everyone, with a mix of events ensuring fun for all ages.

Summer activities at Kent Life feature a different theme each week including whacky races, fairy tales and the seaside. The Hop Farm is a great family day out and Leeds Castle has a variety of activities to keep the children entertained. Get creative with a full programme of classes at This Art of Mine, or get into gaming at Maidstone Museum with workshops inspired by their summer exhibition ‘Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered’.

There are a host of theatrical delights to enjoy this month including open air performances of ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’ in Mote Park and ‘The Wind in the Willows’ at Leeds Castle, which will also provide a stunning backdrop to Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

If you love live music, look out for Madness Live this month at the County Showground or go retro with the Supersonic 70s Show and Dancing through the Decades.

The ever-popular Combined Ops Military Spectacular returns to Headcorn, while the outstanding Military Odyssey is back at the County Showground.

The Ice Cream Festival returns to Kent Life on August Bank Holiday Monday. Come along and learn how ice cream is made, sample tasters and visit the chocolatiers and sweet stalls - a real treat for kids of all ages!

With lots of additional events and activities taking place this month, not to mention attractions to discover, there is plenty to keep young and old amused throughout the whole month.
