Discover what’s on in Folkestone, every month there are things to do: Autumn brings us the Folkestone Songwriting Festival,  and the Folkestone Book Festival.  The Living Advent Calendar starts its workshops in October and November, leading up to the big door openings in December. There’s the annual Boxing Day Dip  for those brave enough!  Our Songwriting Festival happens in October along with Pier Pressure, our free skateboarding festival, on the Harbour Arm. This is building momentum to the opening of F51, Folkestone’s world-class multi-storey skate park in 2020. Charivari Day, Folkestone’s carnival is on in July. Pride Folkestone has been building momentum to the march in July, and the Harbour Market is in full swing over the warmer months. TEDxFolkestone is something to get excited about in June.
