Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) is working with the Hazlitt Institute as budding actors take over Maidstone Museum, entertaining anyone who visits.

Characters will be dressed in historical costumes and will act out scenes from Maidstone’s past. Join William Hazlitt, one of Maidstone’s famous historical characters, as he takes people on a guided tour, uncovering some fascinating facts about his life and the wider history of Maidstone along the way.

Cllr Claudine Russell, Lead Member for Leisure and Arts said:

“If you are looking for a free, fun way to end February half term and find out more about the town then please come along and join us.

“It’s lovely to see the Museum back open again and hosting great entertainment like this. It sounds like a fascinating way to find out about the history of our County Town.”

All the entertainment is free to enjoy however the guided tours must be booked in advance via the Hazlitt Theatre website.

There are two tours that will last around 45 mins each.

This is a walking tour at Maidstone Museum with stairs involved and limited  places to sit whilst watching performers.
