Canterbury Historical and Archaelogical Society (CHAS)

Canterbury Archaeological Society was established in 1920 'to encourage the study of the history and antiquities of the City of Canterbury and surroundings and to preserve the architectural features and characteristics of the City.' Currently, its principal activities are to arrange a series of winter lectures by invited speakers on historical and archaeological subjects, and to organise summer excursions to places of historical interest. Non-members may attend the lectures on payment of a small fee. The programme for the lectures is published in the autumn. The Society seeks to raise and maintain interest in the City's architectural heritage.

Canterbury Three Cities Association

This triangular association was formed in 1985 to develop understanding, friendship and support between the citizens of the Canterbury District, Bloomington-Normal (Illinois) in the USA and Vladimir, Russia (then the USSR). The association set out to foster cultural, educational and business links between our very different societies, leading to friendships which have lasted for decades.

The link attracted national attention in 1988 when promoting a world-first school pupil exchange with the Soviet Union. Links have since been established between academic institutions in each city. Over the years choirs, musician, folk singers, artists, photographers, dancers and sports enthusiasts have visited each others’ countries. There have also been numerous exchanges or study visits by professionals and Association members, and several civic delegations have travelled between the three countries.

The Association is supported by both Canterbury City Council and its Honorary Patrons, the Lord Mayor of Canterbury and the Bishop of Dover, the Bishop in Canterbury.

Adam De Ville

Framework is an arts production company in pursuit of a story that fits. We often find ourselves suspended, caught between the fragments of an elusive grand narrative, blurring the boundaries of our real and imagined lives. We search for a story that fits, and explore the brief encounters and happy accidents that happen along the way. Performance lies at the heart of our work, and the material reflects our aims. Form is driven by story and the questions we attempt to answer.

English-Speaking Union (Canterbury & East Kent)

The ESU is an international educational charity with a head office in London. We have branches in many areas of the UK, USA and Australia, and also in over 100 countries worldwide. Our aim is to promote international understanding through the use of the English language. We run international debate and public speaking competitions and offer bursaries for education. The local branch sponsors Shakespeare and public-speaking workshops for local school children and offers scholarships to young musicians and actors. We also run an interesting programme of social events to raise funds for our charitable work.
