Folkestone Fringe curates art, architecture, sound, and performance in Folkestone. We produce a range of annual festivals for the town, with the intention of presenting high-quality work by local and visiting artists. We want our audiences to see, watch, hear and learn new things. We want our work to connect people to each other and the place we live in. Our programmes are created with our collaborators and delivered by young people developing their future working in the arts.

Salt 2019

// THU 19 SEP - SUN 22 SEP 2019 // *Upcoming Documentation/News*

SALT Festival of the Sea and Environment took those involved on a creative and inspiring journey through the landscape and culture of the coast around Folkestone. There were opportunities to walk, talk, make, write, observe, have fun and share ideas over good food in the great outdoors. SALT is co-curated by Folkestone Quarterhouse, Folkestone Fringe and Go to the Pine, with ideas gathered from the local community.
