An amazing summer of events in Maidstone and the Weald of Kent
Maidstone town centre will play host to a number of events this summer, but one we are very excited for is the very first Wine Weekend, which takes place Saturday 16th July 2022 at Sessions House, The County Hall.
Supported by a number of local businesses including ourselves and organised by our friends at Frederic’s Bistro, the One Maidstone Business Improvement District, and Kent County Council, the event will showcase the viticulture sector here in the region showcasing the vineyards, their produce, tours and other tourism offerings.
Tickets cost £15 which are redeemable against any produce sold at the event and all of the proceeds go directly to the exhibitors.
So you can taste, buy and take home a selection of fabulous local Kent wines and enjoy the whole experience in the beautiful setting of Sessions House.
Vineyards who will be at the event include Chapel Down, Balfour Hush Heath Estate, Simpsons, Wayfarer Wines, Domaine Evremond, Gusbourne and Biddenden Vineyard.
Tickets are available now and can be bought from www.thewineweekend.co.uk
