If you have any concerns or questions please do get in touch to [email protected]. We appreciate your patience during this very busy time.
Caravan are considered by many to be the undisputed, unsung heroes of the British Prog movement. Often quoted as being one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the ’60s progressive rock scene, over the years they have managed to achieve cult status and have maintained a passionate and diehard following.
Originally formed in Canterbury in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement, and produced their own brand of “superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work” (NME) and packed venues worldwide. The current Caravan line-up includes Pye Hastings (1968 founding member: guitar, lead vocals), Geoffrey Richardson (joined 1972: viola, guitar, flute, vocals), Jan Schelhaas (keyboards), Jim Leverton (bass, vocals) and Mark Walker (drums, percussion).
Margins Cafe will be serving delicious, hot, homemade food at this event. All profits support The Margins Project, which works with people who face homelessness and crisis and is based here at the Chapel.
Important: You must also have a ticket for this event to eat at Margins Cafe. The Cafe opens to all ticket holders when the chapel doors open, scheduled to be 19:00 for this show. We’re also taking limited early dinner reservations at 18:30 for this event. Be quick it can fill up fast!
How to book early dinner reservations: You can book for dinner when buying your ticket through our site. If the option doesn’t appear then it means dinner is fully booked. If you have already purchased your ticket for this show you can check availability and book for all dates here. If there are no tables available it will say ‘We are sorry but this event has sold out.’
Information for people with a reservation: You’ll get an email with full details shortly before the event, however, you just need to come to the black gate to the left of the main entrance, marked Early Dinner Reservations at 18:30 and show your reservation and gig ticket.
Menu: The menu will be displayed here; it normally goes up a couple of days before the show. There will always be at least two hot meals, one of which will be veggie, to choose from, plus lighter bites such as quiche and salad. Check out the sample menu here.
