due to social distancing regulations and the compact size of the Festival Office, we have made the decision to limit our Box Office service to online and phone bookings only. If you are unable to book using either of these methods, please contact us on 01227 457568 and we will arrange an appointment for you to visit in person.

Canterbury Festival Ticket Information

Concessions, where applicable, are detailed in the ticket price sections of each listing. Proof of status may be required.

The Festival aims to provide excellent access for our visitors. We are however, restricted by the design of the some of the older buildings, meaning that our venues have varying levels of accessibility. An access overview can be downloaded here. Alternatively, contact the Box Office to discuss your access needs. The Festival cannot accept responsibility for accessibility of Exhibitions, Artists’ Open Houses Trails and Umbrella events.

In unavoidable circumstances, Canterbury Festival reserves the right to alter artists or programme content. We regret that tickets cannot be exchanged or money refunded unless an event is cancelled.
