Band of the Month

James Kirby

Singer-songwriter James Kirby opens his latest UK tour with a gig at Canterbury's Gulbenkian on Tuesday 14 November at 8pm. Gorgeous guitar playing, thoughtful lyrics and a keen ear for melody give this artist the folksy edge. Kirby's new album 'Foreign Land' was released earlier this year. Tickets £10-£12 from thegulbenkian.co.uk

Wow Magazine

Wowkent.co.uk was preceded by the award-winning print magazine, WOW. Founded by actress Emma Dewhurst in 2010, sixty-five print copies of WOW magazine were published over the six years of its life. High quality articles, stunning visuals and a determination to bring readers the very best of what's on where made this lovely little magazine stand out from the crowd.

At the end of last year, after much deliberation, the decision to stop publishing the magazine was taken and the Dec 2016 issue was its last.

We're delighted to have kept the website going, however, and will continue to feature the best of WOW and we welcome your arts listings, news and views more than ever. Please help us to grow the site into the go-to place for all things arts and culture in Kent!


(The above are just some of the words used by WOW Reader Survey respondents when asked to describe the magazine).
