Situated halfway between London and mainland France, Canterbury is a UNESCO World Heritage City with a tradition of innovation in music. The choral tradition stretches back 1400 years; in the 1960s and 70s, the city became famous for the progressive rock of the Canterbury Scene, and trailblazing electronic composer Daphne Oram taught at Canterbury Christ Church University in the 1980s.

Contemporary Canterbury is now bustling with musical life: a scene of internationally-recognised bands including Syd Arthur and Jack Hues and the Quartet; Free Range, a weekly series of experimental sound, music and poetry events; The Crash of the Moons club featuring the best new bands, the Wintersound festival for new music and sound and the City Sound Project, featuring the best in urban music.
