Dodgems & Floss – Wise Words Festival
We feel incredibly lucky to have such support from the businesses in Canterbury without which we just wouldn't be able to continue to grow and develop. But, what we have realised is that sponsorship is about finding the right partners and developing a long relationship that grows over time.

Young Poets Vs Mc's Vs Comedians

If you enjoy spoken word, comedy or rap then this is where you should be this time next week! Pitting gladiators of comedy, rap and poetry against each other in competition for the tightest rhetoric, the wildest imagination and the most dextrous barbs, Culture Clash fight a cheeky and irreverent battle between the three art forms, to the metaphorical death. Let the baying crowd decide who lands the killer blows.
