spiegely small.jpgWe are delighted to be able to welcome back the Spiegeltent for another year of spectacular cabaret, circus, puppetry, comedy, dance, music and family events.

However we still need to raise an additional £60,000 in order to ensure that the tent will remain part of the festival for years to come and to safeguard the Arts Council Catalyst Match Fund.  So please continue to show your support - please visit our MyDonate page and give whatever you feel you can. See you there in October!


Canterbury Festival


Festival Tea Dance

With the Ragroof Players

The Festival Spiegeltent

Sunday 19 October 2014 at 2:00 PM

Tickets: £14 (bkg fees apply*)


The Ragroof Players Tea Dance is a fantastic three-hour participatory event featuring DJs for discerning dancers playing authentic music from the 1920s to 1950s: vintage costumes; glorious dance displays; the company’s trademark instant dance classes; and a chance for everyone to trip the light fantastic.

Everybody welcome, no partners needed – and it won’t matter who leads.

So polish up your dancing shoes and join in. If you fancy it – dress to impress, but it’s not compulsory.

Tea and cakes will be served and the bar will be open for those requiring a little Dutch courage to take to the floor!
