THE YARD at platform

Welcome to our Yard, a new event space for Canterbury.

When we took on our new premises in the middle of a pandemic, the back ‘garden’ having been overgrown for years was more like a jungle.  But now, armed with secateurs and determination, plus a little bit of good fortune, we have reclaimed and transformed a space that’s nearly 50 metres long.


St Dunstan’s Street has a reputation as a heavily polluted part of Canterbury due to the high density of traffic flow through the level crossing.  To offset some of the pollution, we are trying to make the yard as green and insect friendly as possible to attract bees and butterflies, creating our own little wild space from what was a disused yard.


BAZAAR, a monthly makers market will be our first regular event. More details can be found in the news section below or you can get an application pack here.

Future events will include private views, yoga sessions, life drawing and other classes from our makers. Please get in touch if there’s something you’d like us to offer.
