Gala Concert Success
Our Gala Concert held on Friday 17 March in the Great Hall of Allington Castle was a glittering success enjoyed by 120 people, including Sir Robert Worcester, the owner of the castle. Also attending were the Chair of Kent County Council Mrs Lesley Game, the Mayor of Maidstone Cllr Derek Mortimer, and the Mayor of Medway Cllr Jan Aldous, two previous High Sheriffs of Kent and several Deputy Lieutenants. Hosting the concert were the Trust's patron, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Kent, The Lady Colgrain, and Nancy Litten, Chair of the Trustees. The event opened with a wine and canapés reception and included a Silent Auction, which raised £1,100. Read the Kent Online article and take a look at our Gala Gallery!
