Welcome

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.

Along with many colleagues in the cultural sector, us at the Fringe are currently working from home. In these unprecedented times, it is vital for communities to stick together, by all of us doing what we can to help those most vulnerable - even if it's just a phone conversation. Please listen to what health advisors are telling us all & stay home. Remember this isn't forever, and our events, projects & planning which are so ingrained in the cultural landscape of our town & community, will simply be postponed. You can find what has been postponed, and what we're currently working on, via this homepage.


LADA DIY 2020 // PROPOSALS DEADLINE EXTENDED: 09 APR

Folkestone Fringe are a proud partner of LADA (Live Art Development Agency) DIY. DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual research, training, and professional development projects for themselves and other artists. In the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, we're encouraging artists to think boldly and creatively about what a professional development workshop might look like in the context of social isolation/distancing.
