The rich plethora of artistry that is the annual Canterbury Festival kicks off on Saturday 15 October, bringing a feast of music, theatre, dance, comedy, talks and more to Canterbury.
Of particular note are: a concert with Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble; the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra with an all-Russian programme; Tchaikovsky’s delightful Souvenir de Florence from the Trondheim Soloists, and a lunchtime concert by some of our very own University Music Scholars at the Festival Club on Friday October 25th, accompanied by yours truly.
Ian Swatman, conductor of the University Concert and Big Bands, is appearing with the KD Jazz and Dance Orchestra on October 21st.
Elsewhere, Theatre Royal Bath Productions bring Alan Bennett’s classic ‘The Madness of George III’ to Margate, comedienne Shappi Korsandi and barman Al Murray gurantee laughter, and there are talks from art-critic and television presenter Andrew Graham-Dixon and the fabulous poet, Wendy Cope.
