Canterbury Bid

Join the medieval mayhem this July

The Medieval Pageant parade in Canterbury high street

Canterbury’s Medieval Pageant and Family Trail returns on Saturday 6th July 2019. An anticipated audience of 5,000 will be enjoying the Medieval Pageant processing through the city streets between 11am-12.30pm. The fun continues into the afternoon with a city wide family trail featuring medieval activities in a variety local heritage sites which saw a record 4,000 visits during last year’s event.

With this amount of footfall, why not get involved and promote your business with a bit of Medieval mayhem too!

Decorate your window

Decorate your window with a medieval theme – think jesters’ hats, bunting, banners.

Offer a medieval discount

Offer an 11.74% discount to commemorate the year that Henry II came to Canterbury to perform penance.

Programme a medieval inspired performance

Are you planning any medieval-themed music, dance, performance or cinema? Let us know!

Medieval meal deals

With so many children in the city for the day, why not offer an ‘early bird’ medieval family feast and for the adults add a medieval dish to your menu for the day? Or hold a Medieval Banquet in the evening? Let us know and we will include you in our publicity.


Promote the event

We can give you a Medieval Pageant poster saying “get your Medieval Family Trail Leaflet here!” Anyone wanting to participate in the Family Trail will need a leaflet and these will be available at least two weeks prior to the event.

Whatever you do, let us know so we can promote your activities on around Canterbury! Contact us by 15 May: or ring the office on 01227 787 055.
