Canterbury Festival - 15 October to 5 November 2016
Canterbury Festival is Kent's International Arts Festival and attracts over 70,000 visitors every year. The Festival brings internationally acclaimed artists to the city while also celebrating its home grown talent. A few highlights of this year included Luke Jerram's street piano project 'Play Me I'm Yours' which filled Canterbury with music as 10 pianos were placed around the city available to be played by visitors. The Spiegeltent returned for its third year, hosting family friendly events during the day and comedy, live music, circus and cabaret in the evening. The Cathedral was converted into a cinema to mark the 80th Anniversary of the Festival's commissioning of TS Eliot's 'Murder in the Cathedral'.
With over 200 events during the Festival fortnight, embracing theatre, music, comedy, circus, cabaret, art, sculpture, walks, talks and a whole division dedicated to science, there really is something for everyone.
The 2016 programme will be announced this coming July. To find out more please visit www.canterburyfestival.co.uk
