Organised by the Hadlow Provisional Rotary Club as a charity fund-raising event, 'In Celebration of Kent' was an evening of prose and poetry readings and light classical music with strong Kentish connections.


During the event the audience was entertained by, among others, readings from Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, work by celebrated Kent poets and songs such as White Cliffs of Dover. One of the more unusual performances involved African music and the vocal creation of wild animal noises - Port Lympne Wildlife Park providing the link between Africa and Kent! 'In Celebration of Kent' was held at Hadlow College, coinciding with the college's inaugural 'Art in the Garden' exhibition in Broadview Gardens. Guests for the evening were invited to join Neil Bain, one of Hadlow's senior floristry lecturers, on a private guided tour of the exhibition which included works by artists and floral designers from across the south east.


If you were also at the 'In Celebration of Kent' then we would love you to add your photos of the day to this page.
