Kent Big Day Out

Kent Big Day Out

We’re pleased to announce that the Kent Big Weekend is back for 2022, it will now be known as the Kent Big Day Out - we are calling on the county's tourist attractions, venues and destinations to get involved!

Kent Big Day Out celebrates the leisure, tourism and hospitality industry in the Garden of England by offering thousands of FREE tickets to Kent residents. This is a special time for residents to experience first-hand all that their county has to offer, providing a great opportunity for you to showcase your venue to a local audience and further afield through recommendations.

Following feedback from previous years, this year we have decided to deliver the campaign in September, an important shoulder month following the busy summer period, to continue to drive visits into the Autumn. Running from 17th September – 14th October 2022, this year we're extending the redemption period to allow residents more opportunity to enjoy a day out in Kent and our attractions and venues are not swamped with visitors over one short weekend.
