Made in Kent: making sure everyone can be a part of the biggest Arts Festival in the region.

Canterbury Festival is looking to find, develop and showcase local emerging and mid-career talent. We’re running competitions in each of the different art forms represented in the programme: Theatre, Dance, Classical Music, Pop Music, Poetry, and Comedy.  

Each strand of Made in Kent consists of a competition open to the public – the winners will be mentored and show-cased as part of Canterbury Festival.
