Deal Music And Arts Festival

Deal Music and Arts Festival

1st July - 17th July 2022

There’s something irresistible about the combination of summer, the seaside and wonderful music in the air. The Deal Festival is a unique celebration of all three – great classical and contemporary music from some of the world’s finest music-makers, as well as theatre, opera, cinema and dance – in the beautiful and historic surroundings of Deal and Dover on England’s south coast.

Deal Music & Arts has been bringing the best in arts and culture to East Kent for nearly 40 years, and in that time we have welcomed many of the world’s greatest artists.  Over those years, they have evolved from a summer festival to a year-round organisation that maintains that vibrant festival and supports a series of education programmes. 

They bring the highest standards of artistic experience, supporting local and regional communities, and we welcome artists of international stature. They present events in a range of locations, from historic castles and gardens to art galleries, from theatres to ancient churches, but their 16 day summer festival is a real cultural gem you can't miss. 

Theatrical highlights this year include Shakespeare's Othello from the grounds of Walmer Castle and The Importance of Being Earnest in the St George's Church gardens, while musical highlights include The Ronnie Scott's Jazz Orchestra and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at St George's Church, Deal.
