Westgate Hall brings people together. We ignite energy, ingenuity, passion. We’re a place where ideas and dreams come alive and fill the space with colour and fun.
Here’s where we share our news, our stories and hear each other’s voices. Would you like us to hear yours?

With Love from Westgate Hall
As we all celebrate a day of love for Valentine’s, our CEO Clare reflects on the passion, tenderness and devotion that makes Westgate Hall a venue full of heart, during Covid-19 and beyond.
Westgate Hall becomes a Covid-secure venue
As the world adapts to the events of 2020, Westgate Hall has responded and is a fully Covid-secure venue, ready to host events as and when guidelines permit.
Community is at the core of Westgate Hall – what we do, who we are and how we operate. For over 100 years, we have been a civic space, full of heritage and heart, supporting businesses, health services, educational establishments and social purpose organisations and groups.
Built by public subscription as a Drill Hall for the Territorial Army in 1913, the Hall was saved from demolition in 2011, creating an unparalleled community space for Canterbury and Kent. Discover our heritage and how the Hall supports our community today.

We are host and founder of the Canterbury Wine Festival - an annual event showcasing Kent's world-class wines and viticulture, in the heart of the vineyard of England. Kent is the epicentre of England’s viticulture scene and we want to let the whole world know about it through our festival!
