Waiting to resume
It has been noticed that the non-cancellation of events on our What's On is being mis-interpreted.
It is apparent that with pubs and clubs not allowed to open, and social distancing likely to be in place for several months yet, there will be no events in the near future.
We know that all the organisers are anxious to resume as soon as possible, but this does NOT seem likely any time soon.
We have therefore decided to remove all the events from our calendar. As soon as we hear of any resumption, we will be only too happy to re-install them.
Welcome to the Kent Country web site.
This web site was set-up in 2007 to provide a central information point for anything connected with Country & Western Music in Kent (UK).
We aim to provide a service to the organisers of Country Music Clubs by making available details of their events, venues and contacts.
If you have any news or changes that you wish to pass on, Please contact us.
Suggestions are always welcomed, and we are always happy to hear of errors and omissions. News of planned '1-off' events are also welcomed Click here to see our Contact details.
COVID-19 -- Update
18.4.2020 - Four weeks into our lockdown, and we still no nearer to knowing when we will have events to publish 😕 We can only be patient.
Maggie and I have both received official letters telling us that we are classified as "extremely clinically vulnerable", and as such, we are NOT allowed to leave our property, even for food or doctors visits. No shopping. No outside exercise. We envy those who can at least go for a brief walk.
We know that we have at least 8 more weeks to wait. In the end we look forward to getting out and seeing our friends at the clubs. In the meantime we ask you all to STAY HOME. STAY SAFE.
We are aware that a large percentage of the club members fall into groups that are advised to 'self-isolate' and as such this would reduce the club attendances. This will mean that many clubs, who are already on tight financial margins will need to assess the viability of continuing with the events.
We can only recommend that the organisers are contacted before travelling to the clubs. Any cancelled events we are told about may be found here.
Organisers are asked to let us know as/when decisions are made to cancel events so that we can help spread the word. Our contact details are here.
Yes, as in NO money!!!!
Many people are not convinced that we can provide this web site and the service to the Clubs for FREE.
The fact is we can and do. Since we started in September 2007 we have not asked anyone for any money for this web site, and we have no intention of asking for any.
Designing and building web sites is my 'Hobby' and Maggie loves taking photos, and we also like to listen to Country Music this web site is the result.
We do the work, but we need the support of the Club Organisers to let us have the details of their events, along with any other relevant news.
