What's On in October

It’s that wonderful time of year when the seasons start to change and the fields and hedgerows are filled with autumn colour. There might be a nip in the air and the nights are drawing in, but there are plenty of great events coming up in Maidstone this month.

Maidstone Museum has a feast of exhibitions to explore, from Glorious Glass and Re-Imagining the Doll’s House to uncovering Secrets from the Earth. You can also try your hand at making glass jewellery or transform a piece of doll’s house furniture.

Celebrate the harvest at Kent Life’s annual Apple & Cider Fayre, showcasing their amazing range of home-grown apples, alongside locally produced ciders and apple juices.

There are more liquid delights on offer at the Rum Festival and Oktoberfest this month too.

Brighten up the shorter days with a healthy dose of comedy courtesy of Felicity Ward, Jason Byrne and the amazing improvised comedy play Austentatious.

There are some theatrical treats for younger audiences too with a fantastic new ballet Alice in Wonderland, Bing Live and a charming production of The Wind in the Willows, all coming to the Hazlitt Theatre.

It might seem like the children have only just gone back to school but there’s a half term break coming up at the end of the month. Don’t worry about keeping them amused though as there’s a host of activities to choose from in Maidstone.

Enjoy a Halloween Spooktacular at Kent Life and half term Fun at the Hop Farm, or go on a Monster Quest around Leeds Castle. There are crafty workshops at Maidstone Museum, as well as a special ghost tour for kids!

There’s some ghoulish fun for grown-ups too with the return of Kent-aminated at Kent Life, a special showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and ghost tours for adults at Maidstone Museum.

Finish the month with a bang at the Hop Farm’s annual Fireworks Spectacular, which will light up the sky with a spooktacular theme!
