Canterbury Festival 2017

Realised, when writing about Folkestone Triennial that I hadn’t shared photos from a mid October trip to Canterbury Festival – although it was at the very start, and they wasn’t a lot to see and do (just lots of sunshine).


Festival bunting aside, we had an extensive walk around the city, including The Beaney Museum and Art Galleries. We visited the oldest church in the entire English-speaking world, St Martins, with it’s interesting history

Also, the other end of the city, a walk around Westgate Gardens, in better weather than our visit earlier in the year.

Not really wishing to compare the two, but I enjoyed the very visual element of Folkestone, it was a good way to explore the town – in a similar way as Heritage Open Days gets people walking around to places they might not have seen before. As a day-visitor, Canterbury Festival had less to offer, although it is great for residents, and those with more time to stay and enjoy evening events.

I’m mulling over these ideas as I think about what Tunbridge Wells has to offer….
