20 October 2018 - 3 November 2018


Applications for umbrella / walks / exhibitions ARE NOW OPEN!


In addition to the main programme, Canterbury Festival also showcases a wide range of events happening during the Festival period. Here, you can find out how to get involved with the Umbrella, Walks, Exhibitions and Artists' Open Houses. We endeavour to include as many entries as possible, however with limited space available to promote events in the brochure and on the website this is not always possible.


Please note: You need to have arranged a venue and planned the event before submitting an entry because amendments and cancellations will incur an administration charge of £60 plus VAT.


DEADLINE - Friday 20 April 2018



Whether it is a lecture, a film screening, a dance or a concert, Festival organisers are ready to hear from members of the local community organising an event during the Festival.  


Umbrella Terms and Conditions



Guided walks are a very popular part of the Festival programme and are usually delivered by members of specialist organisations.


Walk Terms and Conditions



Artists are invited to submit a proposal to the Canterbury Festival Exhibitions programme. Popular exhibitions in years gone by have included sculpture, print work, woodwork, mixed media and postcard collections! You need to have arranged a venue before submitting an entry.
