Dartford’s Big Day Out
Saturday 16 July 2022
Dartford’s Big Day Out will make its debut on 16th July, and as the whole country celebrates Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, this year’s theme could only be one thing – ‘The Best of British’. From 11:00am till 6:00pm, Central Park will see entertainment and activities for the whole family, and the organisers hope that everyone in the community will come together to enjoy this free event!
There will be something for everyone at Dartford’s Big Day Out. They are welcoming back the very best of the popular steam rally, with a miniature steam railway offering rides around the park. Get up close with a full sized Spitfire taking pride of place in the British history area, or enjoy traditional fair rides and attractions such as Gallopers, Punch and Judy and a Chair-o-plane. What’s more, Dartford Borough Council has laid on free rides all day! We’ll be there displaying some of our Meccano models.
For those wishing to relax and take in the atmosphere, there will be plenty of space to bring a picnic blanket and set up base for the day. If you don’t fancy bringing your own picnic then Central Park Café and a host of food stalls will be on hand to provide refreshments. And when you want to sit back with a cuppa, head to the Great British Tea Tent, where the tea is flowing FREE all day. What could be more British than a nice cup of tea?
If music is your thing then head to the main stage, which will host performances throughout the afternoon. Best of British is the theme so expect to see tributes to some of Britain’s most famous names as well as local music acts.
Working in partnership with Cohesion Plus, the day will also feature the best of street entertainment and performances to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
