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.
