Canterbury Guitar Society

Canterbury Classical Guitar Society's photo The Canterbury Guitar Society meets monthly from September to July at the Friends Meeting House, 6 The Friars, Canterbury on third Mondays (not August) at 7.30pm.

We welcome (classical) players of all standards, visitors are welcome to attend 2 or 3 meetings free to see if they would like to join us.

Twice a year, we have public professional concerts of a very high standard and a growing reputation locally, the other meetings we perform to and learn from each other. OUR LAST FOUR CONCERTS WERE OVERSUBSCRIBED, YOU NEED TO BE ON OUR EMAIL LIST AND RESPOND PROMPTLY WHEN A CONCERT IS ADVERTISED. We messed up the ticketing for our last concert and had to seat somehow an extra 10 people. That was NOT fair on anyone! We know how it happened and it WON'T happen again!. (Sadly, it means there are at least 10 people who might want to book for our next concert on the strength of the last one, who won't get in!) We have gradually built up a reputation and are having to turn down world class performers, and, sadly, members of our world class audience too!

CGS Performers

Our last 4 concerts were - Gaƫlle Solal, Fabio Zanon, Fernando Espi and Antigoni Goni. These were all sellouts and we sadly had to turn a few people away. Early advance booking is strongly advised!

OUR NEXT CONCERT IS THE BELGIAN GUITARIST JAN DEPRETER, on JUNE 20th - see the events page. A nice varied prgram - Bach, Turina, Legnani and Walton (the Bagatelles written for Julian Bream), and Belgian music by Armand Coeck and Jan Depreter himself..
