Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade

One Maidstone is the proud Event Partner for the Heart of Kent Hospice Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade trail brought to you by Wild In Art.

Pink Fizz

Pink Fizz has been created to honour Maidstone’s rich history in gin distilling. Alongside this heritage our County Town continues to offer one of the most vibrant night time economies in Kent. You will find a range of restaurants, pubs, bars and clubs to ensure that you have a great night out.

A draw will be undertaken at the end of the nine week trail and ten lucky visitors to Pink Fizz can claim a miniature bottle of the Maidstone Distillery’s Gin (a non alcoholic alternative of Pink Lemonade will also be available to those under eighteen). Verification of age may be required upon collection/delivery arrangements of your prize. Please email info@onemaidstone.com to be entered into the draw, stating Pink Fizz and your contact details including name, email address and postal address. Your data will not be used for any purpose other than for the Elmer draw.

Pink Fizz has been designed and created by artist Esme Wells. Esme graduated from UCA Rochester with a first in Theatre and Film and is now a prop maker/scenic artist. Esme works with sculpture, fine art, poly/foam carving, resin casting, prosthetics, scenic art and sewing. Pink Fizz is inspired by the strong heritage of brewing and distilling in Maidstone that dates back to the 17th century which is still being produced by local distillers and micro breweries.

Just Bee

Just Bee Elmer recognises Maidstone as the County Town of the Garden of England and provides a reference to the stunning rural areas in Kent that surround us. At a time when well being and self care is so important Just Bee Elmer reminds us that the therapeutic benefits of nature are all around us.

A draw will be undertaken at the end of the nine week trail and ten lucky visitors to Just Bee can claim a free bee bomb. Just scatter the seeds that it contains and as the flowers and plants bloom you will be attracting bees, and supporting the environment. Please email info@onemaidstone.com to be entered into the draw, stating Just Bee and your contact details including name, email address and postal address. Your data will not be used for any other purpose than the Elmer draw.
