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. MOST OF OUR CONCERTS HAVE BEEN OVERSUBSCRIBED AND WE HAVE NOW CHANGED OUR VENUE (FOR THE CONCERTS ONLY) TO St PAUL'S CHURCH, WHICH CAN SEAT NEARLY DOUBLE THE F.M.H. We have gradually built up a reputation and are having to turn down world class performers.
