spiegely small.jpgCanterbury Festival is currently fundraising to support our Spiegeltent venue for 2014. This exciting venue came to Canterbury in 2013 and saw nearly 10,000 people attend a whole range of events including Comedy, Cabaret, Circus and much more!

We have to raise half the money needed to bring the Spiegeltent back to Canterbury and the Arts Council have agreed to match fund the other half.

If every visitor to this site last year donated just £2.00, we would be half way to our target! Please visit our MyDonate page and give whatever you feel you can. See you there in October!

Closing Party with Lúnasa

One of the finest traditional Irish bands of recent years

The Festival Spiegeltent

Saturday 02 November 2013 at 9:30 PM

World Music
Tickets: £15


Lúnasa is internationally acknowledged as being the finest traditional Irish instrumental band of recent times, renowned for stunning shows honed by superb musicianship and a constant touring cycle. The band has sold more than a quarter of a million albums and concert appearances have included internationally renowned venues such as the National Concert Hall (Dublin), Sydney Opera House and an invitation to appear at the White House.

Lúnasa’s inventive arrangements and bass driven grooves have steered Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory. Their recordings have been hailed as some of the best and most important world music albums anywhere, while their blend of intelligence, innovation, virtuosity, and passion has brought them to the forefront of Celtic Music.
