The two-day event featured an all-star line-up including Britain’s Got Talent band Loveable Rogues, and Ray Quinn, who made his name on TV’s The X Factor.

Thousands of people braved the elements to enjoy one of the South East’s largest free festivals.

Alongside the headline acts were Chas & His Band – Chas Hodges, who found fame as one half of Chas & Dave – and tribute bands the Counterfeit Beatles and The Beached Boys.

A funfair, beer tent, food stalls and displays also kept the crowds happy and Kent Chilli Farm was awarded the “best stall” prize by Dartford Mayor Ann Allen.

Festival goers took to Twitter to share their experiences.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
