Arts & Culture

Folkestone is the best seaside town for arts and culture in the UK.  There’s the Folkestone Triennial Festival every three years and many more events in between.  Folkestone Artworks is the largest outdoor gallery of previous Triennial festival pieces on public display around the town.  The Creative Quarter is home to creative businesses, which are relocating here as we support start-ups and established artists. We’ve got activities for future creatives too.  Discover how creative people and industry are shaping Folkestone!
