Help us celebrate Canterbury Music Club's 80th Anniversary Season, as we continue our  tradition of presenting artists of international standing to the people of Canterbury and our neighbours as we have every year since the dark days of 1941 - including during the Covid lockdowns of the past year!

Membership is priced extremely competitively and further details can be found here.

Alternatively, tickets to individual concerts can be purchased and more information on this can be found here.

Please note that we may need to change details of concerts owing to Covid

and other circumstances beyond our control.
