Award winning music, poetry, arts and film live events in and around Canterbury
Free Range 2021
Free Range is an award-winning arts charity that presents adventurous music, film and dance events with a policy of free-entry.
We are Canterbury’s best-kept secret. Since we began in 2012 we’ve delivered 216 extraordinary events and worked with over 1000 artists.
The purpose of adventurous culture is to help us see and hear familiar things in a new light. Cultivating an openness and curiosity toward difference is important in the world right now. Our Autumn programme includes a story of activism told through music, words and video from Extinction Rebellion Canterbury; a screening of The Whalebone Box, Andrew Kötting’s film about love, difference and mystery; dancing clowns with broken accordions with the Lunatraktors; live-streamed dance collaboration with performers in Canada and the UK with MOONSEED and much more.
Free Range has helped to create a strong regional community of artists, audience members and organisations that care about adventurous culture. We do this through presenting genuinely independent cultural events of the highest quality in an informal, playful and provocative way with a policy of free entry.
Free Range events are for everyone.
Our purpose as a charity is to present free-entry high-quality adventurous culture to the people of East Kent. Like the NHS we are free at point of delivery but we rely on the donations of people who value our work.
A season of 9 events costs £8380 and is funded mainly through the goodwill of individual donors.
