Folkestone is the best seaside town for creative culture in the UK.  There’s the Folkestone Triennial Festival every three years and many more events in between.  Folkestone Artworks have 46 Triennial 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!
