Kent is the Garden of England and for one weekend in 2016 we gave local people an opportunity to enjoy all that it has to offer.

The ballot closed on Sunday 14th February, and over 119,000 entries were received in total!

Tickets have now been allocated and all entrants have been notified as to whether they were successful or not.

If you are taking part in the Kent Big Weekend, don't forget to enter our Twitter or Facebook competitions, for your chance to win English Heritage membership for two people!

Thanks to everyone that took part.
