My Kent Big Weekend -17 and18 March 2012


The Big Weekend is all about celebrating Kent's unique and diverse tourism and leisure offer. More than 100 venues have provided more than 15,000 tickets free of charge this year, ranging from free entry into gardens and castles, to free watersports and horse riding taster sessions.





















No need to rush for tickets




This year, we will be opening a ballot for tickets until Midnight onMonday 13thFebruary.



There is no need to rush to apply for tickets as it doesn't matter when you enter the ballot, everyone has an equal chance of getting tickets whether you apply today or any other day.



You can enter the ballot now at www.mykentbigweekend.co.uk



Before you apply for tickets you need to make sure:




  • You live in Kent - only Kent residents can apply

  • You have a printer - your tickets will need to be printed and exchanged at the venue on the day

  • Decide on a day to visit, and check the date that the venue is taking part in My Kent Big Weekend - some venues are providing tickets for days other than on the My Kent Big Weekend itself

  • Only two tickets per household will be allocated (and a maximum of two tickets per household applied for per venue) but you can enter the ballot for as many venues as you wish

  • Once the ballot closes, we will randomly select those who have been successful in getting tickets and inform the successful entrants by Wednesday 29th February.
