As part of Canterbury Shakespeare Festival 2024...

A compilation of all three parts of our historical trilogy, this all-day event takes in the splendour of Shakespeare’s greatest history plays, Henry VI Parts i-iii and Richard III. Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Canterbury Shakespeare Festival, this ambitious project features a large ensemble of community actors taking you through from the first seeds of the Wars of the Roses to the Wars’ thrilling and tragic conclusion. The Canterbury Shakespeare Festival are proud to present this one-of-a-kind production, so rarely tackled by either amateur or professional companies, and offer this special discounted ticket to this exciting event. We promise you’ve never seen Shakespeare quite like this!

See Henry VI at 10am, Edward IV at 2.30pm and finish the story with Richard III at 7.30pm for £25, a 33% discount.

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
