St Edmund’s School Canterbury is a leading independent school in Kent for children aged 3 – 18 and enjoys an enviable reputation in the arts.

The inaugural St Edmund’s Festival was planned and delivered with a clear and single aim: to celebrate the fantastic talents of young people by bringing to Canterbury an event as new and fresh as it was creative and innovative with a line-up of world-class artists. 


It is my privilege to welcome you to the St Edmund's Festival 2019. This year's event looks set to surpass its predecessors in terms of ambition, reach and creativity.  The vision of a Festival that enables pupils to perform alongside professional artists remains a powerful one and the programme for 2019 is an incredibly exciting one.  It will provide a wonderful learning opportunity for our young pupils and a week of rich, diverse entertainment.  I can't wait!
