Canterbury Festival - 18 October to 1 November 2014

Canterbury Festival 2014


Canterbury Festival is Kent's International Arts Festival and attracts around 60,000 visitors every year to over 200 events in two weeks. The 2013 Festival saw 28 sold-out events, as well as nearly 10,000 people visit the Festival's newest venue, the Spiegeltent!

The full programme for 2014 will be announced in July. For more information, or to join the Festival's eNews list, please visit the website www.canterburyfestival.co.uk

Whilst the original Canterbury Festival started in the 1920s, 2014 marks the 31st Festival in its current incarnation. With help from the Arts Council's Catalyst Fund, 2013 saw a Spiegeltent visit Kent for the first time to great success. It will return in 2014 as a core part of the Festival programme alongside the regular Festival venues; the Marlowe Theatre, the Gulbenkian Theatre, Colyer-Fergusson Hall, King's School and Canterbury Cathedral.

The Festival hosts around 200 events every year inlcuding a superb Classical Music programme alongside some of the best touring theatre and musical acts in the country. The Festival also brings international performers to Canterbury during the two weeks; in 2013 there were two World Premieres and an English Premiere, plus four nights with internationally acclaimed circus company Casus from Australia.

2013 was the biggest Festival to date and it is hoped that 2014 will be even better, making October the pefect time to plan your trip to Canterbury.
