Events at this Venue


The heart of Wise Words Festival lies in Canterbury's Secret Garden, belonging to the Franciscan Friars - an unexpected haven just a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

Thought provoking talks, music, performances, storytelling and poetry take place in a beautiful yurt, tents and in the ancient Franciscan Chapel. From here the activity spills out across the city - onto the streets, in gardens, in coffeehouses and even on the river. You might stumble across a poet performing whilst you pay for your morning coffee; a storyteller on a punt; lines of verse appearing in shop windows or performance poets on street corners battling for your votes to become the king or queen of the street slam.
