Deal Festival 2014

One Of East Kent's Most Important Summer Cultural Events

We expect to have details of the 2014 programme available shortly. 2012 was the 30th year of the Deal Festival of Music and The Arts. Originally the brainchild of Swedish pianist Lennart Rabes, today it's a highly respected celebration of performing arts. It attracts an eclectic range of performers and events and has now become an important landmark on the Kent cultural and event diary
