Lesnes plays host to an ever growing variety of events throughout the year. As well as the annual ‘Abbey Acoustics’ music celebration, the site comes alive during the school holidays with a variety of educational events.
Once a year, performers from across the South East and beyond come to Lesnes Abbey to create a truly unique atmosphere on the parks lawns!
The Tertiary Research Group run fossil hunts during the summer half term. The fossil pit contains sharks teeth and shell fish from the Eocene epoch, and the group bring cast off material (fossils of common species) for local children to find.
Being professional paleontologists they are able to identify individual species and give a great ideas on how any one creature lived!
