Spiegeltent by nightThanks to the support of so many of you we have hit our funding target matched by the Arts Council's Catalyst Scheme! 

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

This is the final year of the Catalyst Funding, so from now on - if we want the Spiegeltent - we'll have to keep fundraising and ask for your help to do so. So please continue to show your support - please visit MyDonate page and give whatever you feel you can. See you there in October!


Canterbury Festival


Kenny Ball Junior and his Jazzmen

Keeping the Tradition Alive

The Festival Spiegeltent

Monday 19 October 2015 at 8:00 PM

Tickets: Tickets £20 (bkg fees apply*)


Jazz legend Kenny Ball was one of the leaders of the British Jazz Movement in the 1960s. Career highlights included touring with Louis Armstrong, receiving a gold disc for selling a million copies of Midnight in Moscow and becoming the first British jazzman to receive honorary citizenship of New Orleans. Kenny had one main wish before he passed away in 2013 and that was for his son, Keith Ball, to carry on the legacy. Committed to celebrating his father’s music, Keith and the Jazzmen (same line-up used by Kenny until his death in 2013), will provide jazz fans with a chance to hear some of Kenny’s greatest hits including Midnight in Moscow, I Wanna Be Like You, So Do I, My Mother's Eyes, What a Wonderful World, and many more.
