Summer delights

Begin the season with a visit to one of the many beautiful gardens that the area has to offer. Breath in the amazing scents of the new summer flowers that are in bloom. 

Treat Dad to a special Fathers day feast in a lovely pub or restuarant then work it all off with a  walk or cycle in the picturesque countryside.

If art is a passion of yours then the South East Open Studios is a must, at the annual event held in June you will find a wide range of work on show.  This event is free to members of the public.

There's plenty of reasons to dust off your dancing shoes this summer with Tentertainment which is Tenterden's free music festival held in July, perfect for all the family.  And who could forget  Create  - Ashford's free live music festival showcasing local talent.
