A HIGHLY successful festival is looking for partners for its 2010 showpiece.

Kent and Medway tourism, leisure and hospitality businesses can now sign up for the next Kent Big Day Out, to be held in March next year.

It will be the fourth in a series of five Visit Kent events staged as part of Kent County Council's preparations for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The aim of the event is to help residents find out more about the many attractions in their county.

Head of Visit Kent Fran Warrington said: "The event has gone from strength to strength since it was launched.

"It is a marvellous opportunity for large and small tourism, leisure and hospitality businesses to raise awareness of their attractions and all the new forms of entertainment.

"It is hoped they will then be able to recommend the best places to go when entertaining guests or talking to visitors to the area."

For the 2009 Kent Big Day out, more than 18,000 free tickets were made available for the county's castles, museums, sports venues, theatres and leisure centres.

Almost all the 150 attractions featured last year are offering a free day out again on Saturday, March 27, next year and it is hoped there will be numerous new venues.

Princes Park, the home of Dartford Football Club, was one of the venues that proved popular last year.
