What's On

Medway hosts more than 30 days of free festivals and events each year, more than anywhere else in the south-east. These include the Rochester Sweeps, Dickens and Dickensian Christmas festivals, as well as the annual Christmas market.

The Brook and Central Theatres have a great line-up of music, comedy, dance, drama and children's entertainment.  

Get healthy and active with programmes and major community events including the Medway Big Ride and Medway Mile, as well as major sports events hosted at Medway Park.

In addition, there are plenty of outdoor activities at our country parks that you and the family can take park, including fishing, bird watching, workshops and trails.  

Many of this year's events have sadly been cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19, including the poplar Dickensian Christmas Festival and Christmas Market, but check out the What's On listings for the latest events that are going ahead.
