Opportunities at the Canterbury Festival

Canterbury Festival are looking for submissions for works of Dance and Performance for their Made in Kent Competition, offering dance companies and artists the opportunity to perform in the popular Festival venue of St Mary’s Studio Theatre as part of the 2017 Canterbury Festival.

More information on the dance competition can be found here.

More information on the performance competition can be found here.

The Canterbury Festival Poet of the Year Competition 2017 has also just launched so now is the time to release that inner poet and put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and send in your poems, limericks, ballads, odes, haikus, whatever! More information.

Finally, the Festival are also currently looking for volunteers! 

By volunteering with the Festival, individuals will

  • gain experience of customer care and events management
  • meet new people and be part of a friendly team
  • feel a sense of achievement
  • be supporting the arts in Canterbury
  • enjoy high quality performances (although often it is not possible to see the whole show)

As the public face of the Canterbury Festival, volunteers provide a customer friendly service for the audience.  Volunteers have the chance to experience different roles within the festival.  The Festival will seek to give you the support you require, and training where appropriate and in return ask for 100% attendance and involvement.  It is a mutual commitment.
