Canterbury Festival works throughout the year to develop and support the arts in Kent. As a charity your support is vital to making this possible – your Festival needs you!

Money raised through fundraising events, appeals and the Festival helps to support our activities with young people and those who would not otherwise have access to the arts. However we still need to raise over £120,000 a year to support training and career development for those seeking to work in the creative industries, encourage talent development and facilitate Arts Award.
