I am a party DJ and worked at venues including the Ashford International Hotel, Eastwell Manor, Ashford Town Cricket Club, Homelands and The Conningbrook Hotel.
The club is located in the town centre and has a dedicated function room for private parties as well as the members lounge. There is street parking available outside and the club is close to the bus stops to it's well connected.

The club house at the Ashford Town Cricket Club in Kingsnorth provides all the facilities for the cricket teams, as well as a function room upstairs for private functions.There's a separate bar in the room as well to keep the party contained nicely in one room. The club has plenty of parking and is based on the outskirts of Kingsnorth on the Ashford road.

I have provided a couple of corporate events in the function rooms as well as weddings. There are a number of function rooms ranging in size, all accessed via a separate entrance from the main hotel entrance.

As well as being a popular sports venue, the function room here works well for birthday parties and corporate events. There's plenty of car parking outside and access for my equipment is via the main entrance.

The large hall provides the perfect venue for most functions including award ceremonies and other corporate events. There's plenty of parking available and access for my equipment is through a fire exit or the main entrance.
The hotel is located to the north of Ashford, just off the roundabout on the A28 to the north of Willesborough and Kennington.

The village hall is located opposite the church in the village, just off the main road. There's plenty of parking outside and it's easy to load into the hall. There's a stage that can be used to setup on if required.

Located on the outskirts of the village is the cricket ground and Mersham Sports Club. The club house itself has a bar but when I was here I was setup in a marquee next door, which provided more space for the party.
Read my Mersham Sports Club blog
Mersham is located to the east of Ashford and the village hall isn't far from the A20. There's ample car parking outside and access for my equipment is through the hall itself (so best setting up before guests arrive).
Like most modern village halls, this is a perfect all rounder venue with kitchen and bar facilities. The electricity supply to the stage is set on a timer so that power is automatically cut off at a pre-determined time. And as I found out the clock isn't very accurate so it's worth finishing a couple of minutes before this to avoid damaging any equipment.
Not your normal venue for a function, being (pre-coronavirus) a busy train station, but I provided a disco as part of a staff family event at Christmas. The depature lounge is very spacious and offers the perfect party venue overlooking the platforms below.
The hall is located round the back of the church, with parking available and easy access for my equipment.
