Sevenoaks Summer Festival Is Back
The Sevenoaks Summer Festival is back – with an impressive line-up to help the annual event celebrate its 50th anniversary!
Festival Fair opens Festival 2019 on Saturday 22nd June. Centred in Bligh’s Meadow with plenty also going on in The Shambles and Vine Gardens throughout the day, it sets the scene for the amazing variety of performers and performances taking place in and around Sevenoaks up until the Finale Concert on Sunday 7th July, which once again sees a return of the ever-popular Rick Wakeman.
Between these dates, professional offerings include:
• 29th June – The London Community Gospel Choir.
• 30th June – David Starkey (pictured) presents his enthralling talk A Monarchy of Misfits, tracing the history of Royal marriages.
• 4th July – Clare Teal & The Len Phillips Big Band bring smooth vocals, swing and big-band music to Sevenoaks.
Alongside the professional content, community groups’ events feature prominently throughout the 16 days of Festival along with other live music offerings, and a choice of walks, talks and exhibitions.
The Sevenoaks Summer Festival 2019 brochure is available from the Stag Theatre and other locations in and around Sevenoaks. From 1st May, access the Box Office via sevenoaksfestival.org.uk/festivalboxoffice.
