About Us

Tentertainment is a free, family festival for the whole community

It started as a one day event, but has blossomed into the spectacular, confetti-gunned success it is today.

It works beautifully in very simple terms as a summer weekend of entertainment for the whole town and surrounding areas. But it also serves a unique role in promoting Tenterden as a great place to live, work, visit and invest time, energy and money into.

After much legwork and persuasive jaw-work, Tentertainment has become hugely popular with everyone, and that gives a massive boost to all of us involved in staging it. But to give you a more personal insight into the motivation and drive that inspire us to pick up the black bin bags each year,  everyone was asked to sum up what makes it worth all the effort to them…

Well, it’s not big and it’s not clever, but here it is:

  • ‘My Pimms tent!
  • It’s a great way to lose pounds – from my purse as well as my bottom’
  • ‘Drinking gin in a swan’
  • ‘Cosmic Dave in a yurt’
  • ‘Tenterden singing Your Sex is on Fire’
  • ‘The sublime way your feet feel when soaked in a warm bath at the end of the weekend’
