Welcoming Canterbury Festival to Westgate Hall

In autumn 2020, we laughed, let our imaginations run wild and were captivated by performances from Squashbox Theatre, Shakespearience, Professor Palmeroff Magic Show and Bluegrass Band Gentlemen of a Few. We can’t wait to host selected events for Canterbury Festival again this year – watch this space for news.

Amanda, Canterbury Festival

"Hosting live performances for Canterbury Festival during the Covid-19 pandemic seemed like quite a challenge, until we worked with Westgate Hall. Clare and the team had covered all the minutiae and thought of absolutely everything which really helped us to plan, and plan again. Not only that, the space transformed into the perfect backdrop for our social-distanced events, providing ample space without losing the fantastic atmosphere. We can't wait to return to the Hall for the next festival"
