St Ed's Got Talent

Date: Thursday 27 June I 8.00pm
(Festival Bar open from 7pm)
Venue: Festival Marquee
Tickets: £10 adult I £7 child/student U18

(on sale from the beginning of May)

Since the very first St Edmund’s Festival the Pupil Cabaret has been a ‘must see’ and is a wonderful opportunity for the pupils to impress us with their talents. Variety entertainment has always been a favourite of the British and this event is naturally a sell-out.

 

This year the Drama and Music departments are taking it in a whole new direction and encouraging audience participation throughout this memorable evening.

 

As always, you can expect a night full of surprises and good old-fashioned entertainment. Join our very own ‘new’ double act, Gabrielle Scott-Kilvert and Theo Bawtree, as they host this wonderful show in the Festival Marquee.

Kinetic Circus Workshop

Date: Friday 28 June I ALL DAY
Venue: Festival Marquee
For Lower Junior School Pupils (in School Activity)

Kinetic Circus provides circus skills tuition and family entertainment for all ages. They are bringing their workshop to St Edmund’s Junior School for an afternoon of acrobatics and circus performances!

 

Kinetic Circus is owned and run by Paul Incredible. Paul learnt to juggle in 1995 when he was fourteen and started working for local circus company The Kent Circus School.

 

Then in 2003 Paul became a joint director of the company and ran it for seven years, before moving on to set up his own company, Kinetic Circus in 2010.

 

This promises to be an afternoon of extraordinary fun and frivolity for our pupils and staff.

An Evening with Curtis Stigers

Date: Friday 28 June I 7:30-9:00pm
Venue: Theatre
Tickets: £35 adult I £25 child/student U18

Table of 4 including a bottle of bubbly: £160

Curtis Stigers returns to Canterbury and the St. Edmund’s Festival On The Hill with a new show inspired by his weekly online lockdown livestream show, “Songs From My Kitchen”, featuring songs from his entire catalogue - pop, jazz, soul, blues, and even a little country/folk, delivered in an acoustic, up-close-and-personal style. He’ll bring his guitar, his sax, a couple bandmates to fill out the sound, and 30+ years of entertaining stories and funny tales (mostly true) about his long, winding career in show business. And yes, don’t be silly, of course he’ll sing “I Wonder Why” and “You’re All That Matters To Me” so you can be sure you’ll leave the theatre singing.

 

Curtis Stigers has had several self-penned top ten hits as a long-haired, blue-eyed soul singer and has written and sung an Emmy nominated TV theme song (The Sons Of Anarchy). He recorded a track for one of the biggest-selling pop albums of all time (The Bodyguard) and released nine critically-acclaimed, award-winning jazz albums. He has played for presidents and princes and appeared in two Seth MacFarlane movies about a foul-mouthed cuddly bear called Ted.

 

Curtis has toured with symphony orchestras, Elton John, Prince, Rod Stewart, George Benson, and Barry Manilow (to name a few), written songs with Carole King, and duetted with Al Green, Shawn Colvin and Tom Jones.
