On Friday the 27th of April 2018, local dignitaries joined Dr David Lamper, the Executive Head Master of Kent College, Canterbury for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Great Hall.
Watched by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Canterbury, the Right Reverend Bishop of Dover, Trevor Willmott led the dedication service while Dr David Lamper cut the sod.
The ceremony marks the start of a year of building on the campus to realise the state-of-the-art 600 seater auditorium. The hall will be used for the whole school to worship and as a versatile and practical space for the college’s highly regarded drama and music departments as well as for being available for use by the local community.
In this vein Dr Lamper announced a new partnership between the school and Canterbury Festival. Kent College will become a key sponsor for the Festival and will host events during the Festival in the Great Hall once it is completed.
