The Canterbury Festival is Kent’s International festival of the arts. It takes place in Canterbury and surrounding towns and villages each October/November and includes performances of a variety of types of music, art, comedy, circus, theatre, walks, talks and a science strand.
Having been initiated in the 1920s by the then Dean of Canterbury, George Bell, guest artists during that period included Gustave Holst, Dorothy L. Sayers and T.S. Eliot whose 1935 renowned drama Murder in the Cathedral was commissioned by Bell for the festival.
It has since been revamped and expanded in its current format since 1984, it returns this year from 26 September – 4 November 2023 and features an extravaganza of music, performance, talks, family events, science and more.
After no longer enjoying government funding, we are proud to support the festival with a year-round programme of participation engaging over 3,000 people of all ages in creative projects, workshops and work experience opportunities run by the small but industrious team who are dedicated to bringing the best arts and culture opportunities to Canterbury.
