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!


Canterbury Festival


Sammy Rimington

A master of New Orleans Jazz

The Festival Spiegeltent

Monday 28 October 2013 at 8:30 PM

World Music
Tickets: £15


Of all the ‘honorary’ New Orleans citizens who happen to come from England, Sammy Rimington is perhaps the most lyrically musical. A graceful and highly creative master of New Orleans jazz, he came to prominence with Ken Colyer´s Jazzmen around 1960 and has stayed there ever since.

Sammy has played and recorded with every American and European New Orleans-style jazzman of note, and like a small number of other great British reedmen (eg Tubby Hayes and Pete King), his name has become a promise of quality and flair.

Visit Sammy's website here, and enjoy him live from 2011 here:
