University of Kent Canterbury Kent CT2 7NB
The Gulbenkian theatre based at the University of Kent, is a warm, vibrant and buzzing theatre and arts centre. I first attended the Gulbenkian back in 1979 on a school trip to see 'Oh What A Lovely War' and remember thinking what an unusual but perfectly shaped auditorium it was. Little did I know that 35 years later we'd be enjoying a great working relationship with the team at the theatre. At 340 capacity, the venue is suitable for our larger acts such as Fairport Convention, Dougie MacLean, Cara Dillon, Turin Brakes and Show of Hands. Easy, level, adjacent parking, a superb cinema and cafe-bar (with delicious coffee and cakes) but best of all a wonderful support team who are all so professional, friendly and helpful, we love working with them.
