The Wedding Experience - Kent's Biggest Wedding FAIR


We are delighted to bring you The Wedding Experience on Kent Event Centre, Detling: 23rd & 24th January 2021, 10.30 am - 3.00 pm, which has been carefully planned in consultation with Maidstone Borough Council (Covid Security Team), The Safety Advisory Group, Health & Safety Executive and Kent Police.

We have been working hard to ensure we provide a safe environment for everyone attending, by ensuring you can keep distanced with the introduction of more spacious aisles and one-way systems, with enhanced hygiene cleaning regimes and sanitising facilities. And all attendees must wear a mask or face covering. Initially we ask couples to register interest in attending. Nearer the time pre-registered couples will be asked to choose a day and time so we keep within the recommended capacity.

We are confident that you will enjoy a safe, secure and enjoyable time at The Wedding Experience. And we are delighted that we can present you with a unique and valuable opportunity to meet with quality retailers as you resume your wedding planning.

These are the procedures we have put in place for your safety and comfort: click here to download

Admission is Free.

Show opening times both days are 10:30am to 3:00pm.
