May Bank Holiday in Kent
It's supposed to be that wonderful time of Spring where we have a Bank Holiday to enjoy! Even though the weather isn't looking that great for the May Bank Holiday there are still some great events happening throughout the County and some of them are FREE. If you love live music then you should get to Rochester for the well known Sweeps Festival which sees live music happening all over the town and Morris Dancers entertaining the crowds on every corner. The Sweeps Festival is on between 5th and 7th May. Maidstone also has it's own music events going on this May Bank Holiday in the form of the Maidstone Fringe which sees a number of local pubs in the town having live music throughout the whole weekend.
If you are a bit of a 'foodie' then why not visit Ashford where there is a four day food and drink fair taking place in the County Square Shopping Centre from Thurdsday 3rd May to Sunday 6th May. There are a number of stalls representing many different countries, well worth a walk around and perhaps a little 'taste'.
Fancy an evening of Ghost Hunting? The Spitfire, Kings Hill is hosting a Ghost Hunt on Saturday 5th May including seances and many other things all led by professional mediums and paranormal investigators. Tickets for this are £25 and can be booked by calling 07092 981121.

Herne Hill's annual Village Fete takes place on Saturday 5th May with many stalls and attractions. Or maybe the Herne Bay Classic Car and Motor Show appeals to you, it's on Saturday 5th May with over 300 exhibitors and a craft market. It's on between 10am-3pm.
Meopham's monthly Farmer's Market is on Sunday 6th May and takes place in the overflow car park at Meopham Fitness and Tennis Centre of Wrotham Road. Free entry. Eltham's Farmer's Market also takes place this Bank Holiday Weekend, and will be opened by Pam Ferris!
There is so much going on in Kent this May Bank Holiday and if the weather remains at least dry it should be a good one!
