Our team had a great time attending the Kent County Show in the stunning surroundings of the Kent Showground for a celebration of the best in the county. It was great to have so many of you come and say hello and it was wonderful to get to explore the amazing animals, vintage vehicles and retail stands Kent has to offer.
The sun was shining, the sheep were behaving and we also had a high number of What’s on in Kent app downloads…so all in all, a brilliant time was had by all!

Downloads of our app are also growing fast – we now have 7,367 users.

We also partnered up with the amazing Knockholt Fest, Community Food & Music Festival. They offered 2 tickets for the lucky winners to attend on 5th August 2023 in Knockholt, Kent.
