Canterbury Festival 2017
14 Oct 2017 - 04 Nov 2017
The annual Canterbury Festival takes place in October offering its audience the opportunity to enjoy a wealth of theatre, music, comedy, circus, cabaret, art, sculpture, walks and talks. Discover entertainment hidden down medieval alleyways and cultural landmarks brimming with activities for the whole family.
The 2016 festival saw internationally acclaimed artists come to Kent to perform a wide range of shows including the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of Moscow and Australian circus company Circa. The King’s Mile became the home to a series of artist portraits, the Cathedral’s Chapter House was alight with 200 bulbs as part of an international exhibition from Bernardí Roig and a roaming 1920’s vintage dance hall housing circus, dance, cabaret, comedy and plenty of music landed in the city centre. The festival drew audiences of more than 65,000, of all ages, to over 200 free and ticketed events.
This year's events will be announced in early July. For more information visit the festival website.
