To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ralph Vaughan Williams the Canterbury Orchestra presents music by him together with that of his friend Gustav Holst and his pupil Ruth Gipps.

Their music is quintessentially English, honouring our island’s heritage in musical form. The repertoire during this delightful evening will consist of Vaughan Williams’ 5th symphony, Fantasia on Greensleeves and Prelude to 49th Parallel, accompanied by Holst’s St Pauls Suite as well as Seascape Op. 53 by Ruth Gipps.

Ralph Vaughan Williams 150th Anniversary

Sun 27 November


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.
