Welcome to the Canterbury Festival, Kent's International Arts Festival, one of the most important cultural events in the South East. As an independent charity, the Festival brings a rich mixture of performing arts from around the world to surprise and delight audiences each October.
With the 2018 Festival having just finished, our next step is to catch our breath, look back and evaluate before looking ahead to next year!
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making the 2018 Canterbury Festival a success. From audiences, sponsors, volunteers, staff members and hugely talented performers, we just wanted to say thanks for all your efforts!
Now is the perfect chance for you to put next year's dates in your diary... 19th October - 2nd November 2019.
The Festival inspires artists to create and perform. It commissions new work, champions emerging talent and supports those seeking careers in the cultural industries. It adds financial and cultural wealth to the Canterbury District and contributes to the wellbeing of its citizens. The Festival is enthusiastic about reaching new audiences, encouraging participation, providing opportunities for learning and making sure everyone can be a part of the biggest Arts Festival in the region.
