Last weekend of the Canterbury Festival to come

There's still one final weekend flourish of the Canterbury Festival to come, with live music, walking tours, performances and talks.

The Kent international arts festival, which runs in and around Canterbury until Saturday, November 2, has been entertaining the city for almost two weeks with a range of world class artists and performers.

On Friday, November 1, the Spiegeltent plays host to the innovative and anarchic show, Murder She Didn't Write.

The audience becomes both author and sleuth as they are invited to help to create their very own Agatha Christie-inspired masterpiece – and to watch it unfold on stage. Each night the Degrees of Error company create an original and comical improvised murder-mystery.

Miss Crimson poisoned in the parlour? Mr Gold exploded by cannon in Sainsburys? You decide. But will you guess whodunit?

Using audience suggestions, evidence and ideas, the team create a bespoke world - and one lucky audience member gets to play god, choosing both the murderer and victim. With brass, double bass, guitar, keyboards and whatever instruments are to hand, Big Orange Head will entertain you on Friday November 1.

Expect a popular programme with a mix of old and new (Arvo Pärt and Muhly) and some Renaissance pieces (Tallis’ Miserere and Lamentations), as well as pieces that you may not have heard before.
