NHS Blood Donations
Taking care of our community is important to us. Trusted by the NHS, our spacious, hygienic, Covid-secure accredited Hall has hosted blood donation sessions for years.
We have continued to do so throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, even when full social restrictions have been in force, providing a safe space for this vital service.
The NHS has chosen Westgate Hall for years
This is because of our venue’s reliability, thorough and expert hygiene standards and exceptional service.
In 2021, Wellness Markets come to the Hall for the first time, extending the range of health-focused events we host.
We’re here for you at this time
If you’re looking for a safe, trusted and respected community venue that is spacious, makes social distancing easy and has the highest hygiene procedures as standard, see how we can help you. All Covid-secure measures are in place, confirmed by our ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation.
Westgate Hall Market
We showcase Kent's talented Makers, Artists and Producers, all in one place, in our fully Covid-secure venue. Browse the very best in local produce, crafts, arts, homeware, jewellery and more. Meet the people behind the products and hear how they lovingly make each item, or host your own stall.
Canterbury Wine Festival
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!
Bemix Discovery Catering
We regularly welcome social enterprise Bemix Discovery Catering and their wonderful group, those with and without learning difficulties, to enjoy time together gaining skills in cooking and catering. Restrictions permitting, you can visit their monthly pop-up cafe at the Hall.
Canterbury Academy Trust
Westgate Hall supports young people as they practise, rehearse and perform their creative skills during their studies at Canterbury Academy Trust - the "school of all talents". We provide a large, safe space for them to thrive and flourish in as part of their studies and training.
