donations online for this charity
Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate - we are an Arts Organisation that runs the annual Canterbury Festival in October, alongside education and community projects throughout the year.
The Canterbury Festival was selected as part of the Arts Council's Catalyst Match Funding and was offered £187,000 to bring a Spiegeltent to Canterbury in 2013/14 and 15 providing it raised £162,500 through philanthropic giving and fundraising.
In bringing the Spiegeltent the Festival has been able to host a wider variety of events including circus, cabaret, musical comedy and a family programme in a unique venue. The Spiegeltent has brought the Festival a new audience and offered something different to its core supporters.
We are delighted to say that we reached our target by the June deadline and successfully completed the Catalyst scheme.
We aim to keep the Spiegeltent as part of the Canterbury Festival for years to come so need to continue to fundraise to help with the shortfall between box office income and the costs of bringing and fitting out this very special venue. Any help you can give us in our fundraising efforts would be very much appreciated.
