One thing we really missed last year was festivals - but have no fear, smaller local festivals are returning this summer as restrictions are lifted - one of those is Black Deer in Eridge Deer Park in Kent. We visited Black Deer for the day two years ago and I had wished we could have stayed for longer. This year it is running from June 25th - 27th.
Here's what to expect from this June's line-up:
Saving Grace featuring Robert Plant & Suzi Dian
Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls
Latest artists announced
Jake Bugg | The Cuban Brothers| Ginger Wildheart & The Sinners Kitty, Daisy and Lewis | Danny George Wilson | Blue Rose Code

The festival, in Tunbridge Wells, is held within the grounds of England’s oldest deer park. Eridge Park, offers authentic Americana, Southern-inspired food and drink and forest school style children’s activities. With a recent surge in ticket sales, organisers are confident that they will welcome people back through the gates this summer.
In 2019 we enjoyed wandering around and browsing the market stalls and looking at the classic American cars and bikes. There were plenty of food stalls, kids activities and of course great music too. The camping area looked great, we really wished we had camped all weekend but equally it makes a great family day out too.
Committed to giving 1500 tickets to NHS Key Workers
With some members of the Black Deer team having been personally affected by the pandemic and having seen first-hand the incredible work and sacrifices made by so many, they have decided to show their gratitude and thanks by inviting 1,500 NHS and key workers as guests to Black Deer Festival 2021.
