Previously known as the Canterbury Sound Festival, Canterbury Fayre aims to offer a really good friendly atmosphere, celebrating the heritage of an integral part of the British rock music era in the late 60's and early 70's. It features performances by some of its main protagonists and their fellow compatriots together with a new generation of artists who readily acknowledge the influence of the legendary "Canterbury Scene".
The festival has grown over the years to three days: Friday entertainment runs from 4pm-10:30pm, whilst Saturday and Sunday are 2pm-10:30pm.
The full and final line-up is now confirmed - click here for all the info. As well as the Main Stage, this year will also see the introduction of the Croissant Neuf Acoustic stage and a Whirl-y-Gig Big Top Dance Tent.
There are a small number of food stalls doing the normal festival fare, plus a beer tent, a cider tent, stalls (clothing, CDs, ethnic goods, jewellery, etc) and a supervised kids area with face painting, kite making, parachute games, and a bouncy castle.
Full weekend: £70.00
Friday 22nd only: £20.00
Saturday 23rd only: £30.00
Sunday 24th only: £30.00
Saturday & Sunday combined: £55.00
