The event will run across both Thursday 2nd June and Friday 3rd June 12-5pm with a DJ easing celebrations into the night from 5pm – 9pm at Feathers on Friday night in the Love Food hall.

Come along and enjoy the fun celebrations with the playpark nearby, cinema, gravity and bowling inside, the Street Food Hall (Love Food) and the beautiful riverside setting. The event will be set up outside the back of Feathers pub on the new Riverside Terrace.

In-person networking is returning to Maidstone with a not-to-be-missed Maidstone Business Boost (MBB) Networker event at Love Food @ Lockmeadow  Tuesday 7 June, 12-2pm.

Organised by The Business Terrace, MBC’s flexible workspace, the event invites Maidstone businesses of all ages and sizes to come and find out what ‘boosts’ could be available to them.

Event partners will be on hand to demonstrate the support on offer, including LoCASE, C-Care Green Recovery Voucher, Business & IP Centre Kent, TALE, I-Construct, Hi3 Network, Manufacturing Growth Programme and The Business Terrace Business Advisor, Chris Lyle. Whether looking for help with low carbon initiatives, IT improvements, or simply a new project, businesses will discover a range of beneficial programmes.

The event will also be an opportunity to discover the lively Love Food @ Lockmeadow, the perfect location for business meetings. Ticket-holders can enjoy 15% off the wonderful selection of food available including Thai, Caribbean, Pan-Asian, Vegan, American and Middle-Eastern as well as a coffee shop with baked goods and a fully stocked bar.

Free to attend, the networker is the first non-virtual event for MBB, which was set up in 2021 to guide Maidstone businesses through the range of free resources on offer.

Chris Lyle, The Business Terrace Business Advisor comments, “This is a great first in-person event for the MBB team to show exactly how we can help local businesses.

“Whether you’re just starting up, are long-established, or have been through a challenging time lately, we can help you identify any programmes that could really boost your business. I’d urge anyone interested to come along – you might be surprised by the help available to you!”

Love Food @ Lockmeadow is a food hall comprised entirely of independent local vendors and a great example of what Maidstone businesses can achieve with the right support.

The MBB Networker event takes place on Tuesday 7 June, 12-2pm. Businesses are invited to register to attend here .
