A SERIES of events for all the family are planned for Dartford’s Central Park this summer.

This year’s season of free summer concerts at the bandstand begins later this month on May 26, with a performance by the East Peckham Silver Band between 2pm and 4pm.

There will be concerts on every Sunday until August 25, with the exception of July 21 when the Dartford Festival will take place.

Planning is already underway for this year’s festival, which in previous years has seen the likes of The Hoosiers and Loveable Rogues perform.

This year’s festival is planned for July 20 and 21.

Dartford Council leader, Councillor Jeremy Kite, said, “These fun and often free events are put on for you, the residents of Dartford, to enjoy.

“We hope you’ll join us at some of the events in Central Park through the summer and take advantage of the great setting and facilities the Park provides.”
