Events at this Venue


The second annual Canterbury Medieval Pageant on Saturday 8th July is going to be a highlight of this summer in Canterbury!

Commemorating Henry II's pilgrimage to the tomb of Thomas Becket in 1174, accompanied by his Queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, the Parade features characters from history as well as local children in medieval dress and starts near the Westgate Towers at 11am, ending around 12.30pm. With music, drama and pageantry it is a 'must see' event.

But that's not all: between noon and 5pm, various locations in the city are part of the Medieval Family Trail. Designed around children and their parents, the Westgate Towers, the Beaney, the Canterbury Tales, Conquest House, Whitefriars and others will host an exciting range of activities.

Collect your Family Trail Leaflet from The Beaney and many other locations around Canterbury. When you visit any of the places featured in the Family Trail on Saturday 8th July, have the leaflet 'stamped'. Collect at least 5 stamps and receive a FREE giant chocolate coin at the Cathedral Shop on Burgate.

The Family Trail is for children of all ages ... even 'Middle Ages'!

Allow a whole afternoon to complete the Trail. If you have less time, visit the venues of your choice and don't forget to collect your stamps!
