Sevenoaks Summer Festival 2024

After missing 2023, Sevenoaks Summer Festival makes a welcome return this year.

 

CommunityAd Exclusive - Sevenoaks Summer Festival 2024Once again helped by Sevenoaks Town Council as the Festival’s Principal Sponsor, plans are well underway for Festival Fair to start the celebrations on Saturday 22nd June with major sponsorship from Tarmac, Bligh’s Meadow and Sevenoaks School.

Centred in Bligh’s Meadow, Sevenoaks, with entertainment for all the family, Festival Fair will have the familiar mix of music stages, children’s entertainment, walkabout and street theatre throughout the day in Bligh’s and The Shambles, with puppet shows in Stag’s Footlights Bar. On the following Saturday 29th June, Colourscape may be enjoyed on the Vine Gardens, where a children’s event, Painting for Fun, will also be held, as well as music on the bandstand.

The Festival continues for the next 15 days until Sunday 7th July, when the Finale Concert will be held in Pamoja Hall, Sevenoaks School’s award-winning performing arts centre, featuring Snake Davis and his “Classic Sax Solos”.

The focus for 2024 is on performances, exhibitions or other arts-related activities organised by local community groups – showcasing the breadth and diversity of opportunities offered by these groups, whether to perform or as audience – supplemented by a sprinkling of professional, celebrity events.

Joining Snake Davis in the line-up are:

  • Liz Grand and her one-woman drama “Where Is Mrs Christie?” about the disappearance of Agatha Christie in 1926, in Sevenoaks School’s Sackville Theatre on Sunday 23rd June.
  • The LP Swing Orchestra with Joe Stilgoe at Stag Theatre on Thursday 27th June.
  • Emma Johnson and her “Tales From Vienna” in Pamoja Hall on Saturday 6th July.
