Submit your event to the Canterbury Festival 2021 Umbrella programme

Celebrating art in all its forms, the 2021 Umbrella programme invites submissions from artists and performers based in Canterbury and East Kent. This year’s Festival will take place from 16 – 30 October.

Previous Umbrella events have included theatre shows, arts workshops, live music, lectures, dance performances and more. Successful submissions will receive a dedicated event page on the Festival website and a listing in the Festival brochure.

As with our Visual Arts programme, all responsibility for the organisation, ticket management and marketing of the event, lies with the organiser. Please ensure that your event follows and is up to date with applicable Covid secure legislation.

Acting as a Fringe to the core programme, Umbrella events are a brilliant opportunity for emerging artists to present their work to a Festival audience – broadening the Festival’s arts offer and providing exposure for independent events around Canterbury.

A Box Office service can be provided by Canterbury Festival at a charge, if you are unable to find a suitable ticketing solu for your event. For more information, please contact [email protected]
