Wise Words is a programme of thought provoking talks, walks, music, performances, storytelling and poetry taking place in and around Canterbury across the year. Our work culminates in a ten-day festival that takes place each spring.

A Look Back At Years Gone By

Poets of apple boxes, performing on street corners and in coffeehouses, your favourite authors  in yurts in beautiful gardens and storytellers in punts on the river. Wise Words offers something for everyone and many events are free.
