Canterbury Bid

Events Support and Calendar

It is essential that Canterbury remains a vibrant and creative destination for visitors and locals. Canterbury boasts a rich mix of events throughout the year, delivering over 105,000 visitors to the city centre.

The BID both supports events and runs the Medieval Pageant and the Christmas Lights Switch-On.

It invests in existing events and festivals and supports the development of new ones, ensuring that they benefit BID levy payers directly in driving footfall and profitability.

If you are keen to see what Canterbury has to offer in terms of events, take a look at our Annual Calendar of Events. This is a working document and will be updated as new events are confirmed. These are also listed on our monthly events calendar: Canterbury’s Monthly Events Calendar.
