Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Horsmonden Summer Festival Wins £10,000 Lottery Funding

The Horsmonden Village Events Community (HoVEC) Committee is delighted to announce that we have been awarded £10,000 from The National Lottery towards The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration Horsmonden Summer Festival 1st-5th June 2022. This is a fantastic boost to the festivities on the Village Green and we are incredibly grateful to The National Lottery for their generosity in supporting our local event, and to all the local people who play the lottery and provide the funds for good causes.

The Summer Festival is a great opportunity to bring everyone of all ages and backgrounds together and to strengthen our already powerful community spirit. It’s hard to believe that it is 10 years since the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, when HoVEC was first set up to plan a weekend to remember, offering something for everyone. This original Festival received such positive feedback that the decision was made to carry on organising regular Summer, Autumn and Christmas Festivals, plus other smaller events throughout the year. The rest is history!

This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever before, with the extended Bank Holiday weekend enabling events to be spread across five days from Wednesday 1st to Sunday 5th June. Horsmonden Social Club will be working hard as usual, providing bar facilities across the whole weekend, and all profits go towards helping our community so please support them as much as you can. HoVEC could not run these events without the support and help of the Social Club and we are so grateful to all their volunteers who give their time completely free of charge.

Help is urgently needed to help coordinate the Festival and to ensure that it runs smoothly so please contact HoVEC if you can offer any help, no matter how small: info.hovec@gmail.com. For further information please see our Volunteering section on our website. 

For further details and timings of events look on the HoVEC website or Facebook pages, but please note that the Wednesday night Comedy Show and Friday night party are already sold-out.
