Rochester Castle has stood proudly beside the River Medway for nearly 900 years, serving as a key barrier protecting the people of Kent and all of England from invasion throughout the medieval period.

Now, the 12th-century Norman keep becomes the magnificent backdrop to unmissable outdoor shows held at the stunning grounds. Soft Cell, Sugababes, Fat Freddy’s Drop and Nile Rodgers & CHIC will all be making headline performances throughout July – CLICK HERE to book your tickets with Gigantic right now!

There is no parking on site; however, guests can take advantage of the pay and display car parks found nearby – but spaces are limited, and we recommend arriving early to avoid disappointment.
