Kent's Big Weekend

Kent's Big Weekend enables district attractions and experiences to be promoted countywide in return for free tickets to people from across Kent to visit during the two-day spring celebration.

 

Kent Contemporary 

Thanet Tourism has invested as a lead partner in Visit Kent’s award-winning Kent Contemporary campaign re-presenting the Garden of England with a 21st century twist. Striking images of Botany Bay, Broadstairs, Ramsgate Royal Harbour, Turner Contemporary and Margate have featured in the campaign. They have been displayed on 48-sheet posters across London’s overground and underground rail network, on Southeastern rail routes and on Eurotunnel. 

2015 saw the addition of a new shot of Dreamland Margate used in the campaign.

New for 2016 was a stunning image of Viking Bay Broadstairs, as part of the campaign. Images were displayed at London Underground, mainline stations and on the huge transvision screen at London Victoria Station
