There is still time to purchase your tickets for Swale borough Council’s 1920s weekend in Sittingbourne.

The celebration of the 20s provides entertainment for all the family from Friday evening through to Sunday (16-18 Jul).

Cllr Richard Palmer, cabinet member for community at the council, said:

“We have live music, dance shows, theatre shows and a murder mystery taking place in a large marquee that we’re putting up next to our council building Swale House on East Street.

“You will also find a circus act, magician, gangsters and molls on stilts, vintage cars and stalls along the high street.

“The Mayor of Swale, Cllr Paul Stephen, will also be officially opening the Swale Media Arts Centre on Saturday morning.

“Tickets are selling, so I urge anyone wanting to attend to get theirs now to avoid disappointment.”

Cllr Mike Baldock, deputy leader at council, said:

“We’re pleased to be able to run this community event after cancelling last year.

“After a tough 18 months, we want local people and visitors to be able to enjoy the entertainment and get involved in the events we have on offer.

“We have lots free events throughout the day, and some evening entertainment that costs a few pounds, but you’ll need tickets for both so we can manage the flow of people throughout the weekend.

“We’re running at a 50 per cent capacity to help keep people safe and allow plenty of room for social distancing, so make sure you get your tickets ahead of time.”

To book your tickets for any of the free or paid for events, head over to Avenue Theatre to book in person, online at or by phone on 01795 471140.
