Arts and Cultural Events

Enjoy a diverse range of arts and cultural events throughout the year in Swale. Events link to the many attractions in the borough such as celebrations of local food and drink like cherries and beer. Other events innovatively help to communicate the new research or history of the area at a museum.

There are theatres in each town and performances also take place at large country houses set in the glorious English countryside. There is a lively local interest in films and film-making, with festivals and groups showing a variety of different genres from art house to the most popular movies currently at the cinema.

Visit one of the annual music festivals which include music ranging from rock, jazz and classical. Or head to one of our galleries to enjoy contemporary art inspired both by the modern world and the stunning diversity of Swale’s landscapes.
