Museum to Participate in the Kent Big Weekend 2015
The Kent Museum of Freemasonry in Canterbury is once again taking part in the “Kent Big Weekend” which is all about celebrating what is great about the county and helping the people of Kent discover the great and different places to visit and things to do on their doorstep so they can recommend them to their friends and family.
Now in its ninth year, the 2015 Kent Big Weekend will be held on 21st & 22nd March and the organisers, Visit Kent, are hoping to build on last year’s record-breaking success. In 2014, 123 of the county’s visitor attractions and destinations signed up for the Big Weekend and 116,414 applications were received from the public for more than 21,000 free tickets to participating attractions.
Worshipful Brother Tony Eldridge, the Trustee responsible for the Museum’s marketing activities, said: “This is the third year running that we have taken part in the Kent Big Weekend which is always a fun weekend that has really caught the imagination of the whole county.
Over recent years we have attracted visitors from far and wide who didn’t know that our museum existed, or that we are open to everyone and not just Freemasons.”
Tickets are available to people over the age of 18 and living in Kent and you can apply for tickets for as many attractions as you like. At midnight on Tuesday 17th February, the website will be closed for applications. A ballot will then be drawn, randomly selecting winners for attractions from those who have applied. If you are successful for one attraction, you will be removed from the ballot for any other attractions you have applied for, and so you can only win tickets for one attraction. You can only win a maximum of two tickets to any attraction per household in order to give as many people as possible an opportunity to enjoy the Kent Big Weekend.
