Welcome to Canterbury Festival

Canterbury Festival will return 15 October – 5 November 2022 for a two-week extravaganza of music, performance, talks, family events, science and more in the heart of Kent. We’ll be announcing our dates very soon, so keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground!

Canterbury Festival activities also take place throughout the year. Be sure to visit our What’s On section for the latest events and our Participate pages to find out more about opportunities and our extensive community programme.
