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, vistors 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 THREE CONCERTS WERE OVERSUBSCRIBED, AND THE IMMINENT CONCERT ON NOV. 16th HAS NOW SOLD OUT ALSO, 16 DAYS AHEAD OF THE PERFORMANCE.

YOU NEED TO BE ON OUR EMAIL LIST AND RESPOND PROMPTLY WHEN A CONCERT IS ADVERTISED. 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!
