WITH thousands expected to attend the Big Day Out Plus at the weekend, special arrangements have been made for parking.

The Reporter is media partner for this year's annual event, which is held on Saturday and Sunday. Seventy spaces at Gravesend Community Hospital are being made available to the public for the weekend. Access to the car park is from Clifton Road. Council car parks will be free after 6pm on Saturday and all day on Sunday. The Milton Place car park is closed to the public for the weekend. It will be used by exhibitors and participants in Big Day Out Plus.

The annual event will feature the Gravesend Power Boat Grand Prix, for the first time an official leg of the UK grand prix. Up to 40 boats will be on the Thames on both days of the event. Community events, music and food on the first day will culminate in a free evening concert and firework display.

On Sunday, the first Gravesham Maritime Festival promises a family day of fun. Across both days the 162nd Town Regatta will take place on the river with a break for the power boat grand prix. The event is organised by Gravesham Borough Council and North West Kent Racial Equality Council and sponsored by Ebbsfleet Valley.
