Sell-Out ‘Experience Christmas’ Event at Kent Life Wins GOLD in Beautiful South Awards

Kent Life Heritage Farm Park in Maidstone scooped a gold award for its popular Experience Christmas event in the Beautiful South Awards. The award win was announced last night at the Grand Hotel Brighton.

The Experience Christmas event at Kent Life allows guests to meet Father Christmas, attend Elf School, decorate sweet treats with Mrs Christmas and more. The magical event was put forward for the Tourism Event of the Year category earlier this year following a silver win in 2019.

The Beautiful South Awards celebrate the cream of the crop, with finalists representing tourism, leisure and hospitality businesses from across South East England. This year, all entrants were shortlisted and independently judged. Kent Life’s Experience Christmas was up against three other tourism companies from the region.

Sarah Hirsh, Marketing Manager at Kent Life comments: “We are over the moon to win a gold award at this year’s Tourism South East’s Beautiful South Awards. We’re extremely proud of our Experience Christmas event at Kent Life and how its grown, it really has got bigger and better each year!
