Maidstone Borough Council has launched a brand new online directory to help promote arts and cultural activities in the borough.
The new directory contains details of local community groups, with everything from dance classes, performing arts clubs, community choirs, art classes, local history societies to Morris dancing, as well as cultural attractions such as Maidstone Museum, Hazlitt Theatre and Kent Life.
The directory is available through the Arts and Culture section of the main Council website; Maidstone.gov.uk and will make it quicker and easier for residents to find groups and activities which are available locally.
Cllr Paul Harper, Chair of the Economic Regeneration and Leisure Committee said:
“We’re very lucky to have such a wide range of clubs and societies in the borough delivering great opportunities for our residents. This directory will help them promote their activities and also encourage even more people to get involved.
“Taking part in arts and cultural activities has been shown to have a positive effect on our overall health and wellbeing, whether it’s singing in a choir or learning a new craft. Why not try something new today? Go to www.maidstone.gov.uk and explore the possibilities.”
Maidstone Borough Council is asking anyone who runs or is involved in a group or organisation involving arts or cultural activities who isn’t currently listed to register their details through the main directory page. Just complete the simple form and, once the details have been verified, the club will be added.
Free listings are offered to any commercial, voluntary and community arts and cultural organisations located in the Maidstone borough. Details of where and when each group meets and its main activities are included, along with how to get in touch.
