Whats On In and Around Maidstone

“The town of two halves” according to The GuardianMaidstone remains a lovely, historic county town with coaching inns and cobbled streets, but is also home to many office blocks, retail parks and roundabouts too! The history of Maidstone goes back to Mesolithic times and it has been a Roman and Norman settlement, playing its role in the peasants’ revolt and the English Civil War. Also, Maidstone has hosted a large Army barracks since Napoleonic times and was an important centre for Kent’s brewing and papermaking industries. Famous faces from Maidstone include Tony Hart (most famous for the art show “Hartbeat”); Carol McGiffin (former “Loose Women” presenter); Mackenzie Crook (famous for playing “Gareth” in The Office and starring in two Pirates of the Caribbean movies).
