Canterbury Festival

The Canterbury Festival — Kent's largest and longest running arts festival — has a colourful history that dates all the way back to 1920. For two weeks each October, Canterbury and her district turn on the entertainment with more than 200 events including all sorts of music from pop through classical to folk, cabaret, theatre, comedy and dance. Interesting tidbit; in 1935, T.S. Eliot popped on his playwright hat and produced, Murder in the Cathedral, especially for the festival. Whilst today murder may have been removed from the programme, the Canterbury Cathedral remains the festival's most iconic venue.
