UPDATE! As of March 31st 2018 we are no longer publishing listings to the site. After much deliberation, Emma Dewhurst, Wow Kent's founder and editor, has decided to concentrate her energies on new projects. Any listings already published will remain and the site will remain up for the foreseeable future as an archive site. Emma says: It has been an amazing journey but I haven’t been able to look after and promote the site as I would have wanted to, after WOW magazine closed, and I don’t want to give subscribers a less than excellent experience. Therefore, I’ve decided to make the site archive only, remove the ability to put up paid listings, and encourage my subscribers to take a look at what Nathalie Banaigs of Kent Creative Arts is working on. Nathalie is already doing a brilliant job of promoting arts organisations, individuals and events across Medway and Kent, and when her Kent Creative Finder launches in a few months, you will be able to make a profile and submit listings to it in the same way that you can do here. Thank you for your amazing support and loyalty over the years. With love, Emma x

Wowkent.co.uk was preceded by the award-winning print magazine, WOW. Founded by actress Emma Dewhurst in 2010, sixty-five print copies of WOW magazine were published over the six years of its life. High quality articles, stunning visuals and a determination to bring readers the very best of what's on where made this lovely little magazine stand out from the crowd.
At the end of last year, after much deliberation, the decision to stop publishing the magazine was taken and the Dec 2016 issue was its last.
We're delighted to have kept the website going, however, and will continue to feature the best of WOW and we welcome your arts listings, news and views more than ever. Please help us to grow the site into the go-to place for all things arts and culture in Kent!
(The above are just some of the words used by WOW Reader Survey respondents when asked to describe the magazine).
