St Gregory's Church, North Holmes Rd, Canterbury was built in 1851 to a George Gilbert Scott design, as a memorial to Archbishop William Howley.  The church was made redundant in 1975 and is now owned by Canterbury Christ Church University College. used for music studies as 'The St Gregory's Centre'.  It is a warm, welcoming and beautiful venue.  In 2011 it had a major refurbishment which saw raked theatre seating installed and new decor, sound, lighting and facilities, but it remains intimate with superb natural acoustics.  Easily accessible, level free parking right next to the venue, good facilities. Peter Knight (Gigspanner, Steeleye Span) said it was one of the best venues he had ever played.  In the past we've hosted artists such as Steve Knightley, Chris Wood, Girlyman and Gigspanner.   Directions - from the Canterbury ring-road - either direction - opposite the Cathedral Wall (Quenin Gate) car park turn down Lady Wootton's Green. At the roundabout take the first exit into Monastery Street. Turn right into Havelock Street, then right into North Holmes Road, the car park and entrance are almost directly on the left hand side.  There is a bar at the venue and a lovely little pub - The New Inn, in Havelock Street just around the corner.
