KAE attends a summer of events

Over the summer Kent Adult Education attended a number of events and festivals in Kent where the team shared information about KAE's range of courses with members of the local community.

KAE look forward to attending more events in the future where our team will be on hand to discuss our range of courses and learning opportunities with you.

Tunbridge Wells

Tunbridge Wells Mela Festival – Sunday 24th July 2022 Calverley Grounds

For the second time KAE attended the Tunbridge Wells Mela Festival which has been running for 16 years.

With over 1500 visitors to the festival on the day, the event boasted a packed on and off stage programme, showcasing culturally diverse art forms and acts including  the Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band as well as Circus Raj, two acts that hailed from Rajasthan in India. The acts were particularly special in their originality and authenticity and festival attendees were particularly wowed by the performances.
