Take Up Space Festival


Folkestone's Women's Forum Presents... Take Up Space Festival 2020. 

Folkestone Fringe & Creative Folkestone are proud supporters of Take Up Space Folkestone - hosted by Folkestone Women's Forum. We're eagerly anticipating to watch space be royally taken up by this 5-day festival- as women from near & far will be brought together to connect, collaborate, gain strength & support each other through a truly beautiful programme of events.

It’s humbling and down-right awesome to see this festival emerge from previous #internationalwomensday celebrations in Folkestone... to this year, being bigger, bolder and even more ambitious. From speakers, artists, activists, and makers from across the world- there will be poetry, performances, film, dance, thought-provoking discussions & exhibitions, to pop-up markets, craftivism & amazing vegan food.

Keep Wednesday 26 February – Sunday 8 March FREE in your diary, with 30+ events scheduled for the Festival. If you want be part of something special in Folkestone drop [email protected] a line- there are volunteering spaces available.

Full brochure being released very soon. Find & book your place for highlight events on this page.
