What's on in Gravesend and Gravesham

Gravesham Outdoor Events, Gravesend, Kent

Find out what's on in Gravesend and Gravesham today and in the weeks to come. From local talks and walks to major seasonal Kent festivals and entertainment, the borough hosts a huge range of events all year round.

Participate in the significant Kent events linked with festivities, culture and faith - the thought provoking Good Friday Pageant, the distinctive celebrations of the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi and the colourful St George's Day Parade, led by Gravesham school children. The summer festivities draw together the Party on the Prom Festival, the Nortfhleet Carnival and Town and Riverside Regattas.

And when the nights draw in, the annual free Riverside Firework Festival, the vibrant Festival of Light parade and the switch-on of the Christmas Lights in Gravesend Town Centre will brighten up the darker evenings.

Alongside these, experience programmes of arts and entertainment at many venues within the borough, including the St Andrew's Arts Centre and the Woodville Theatre.
