WELCOME TO FOLKESTONE FESTIVALS
Folkestone Festivals have now put in place their programme for 2016, their fifth year of events stretching over several months for the pleasure of residents, businesses and visitors to Folkestone.
Head for the Bandstand for the tenth Multi-Cultural two day Festival of non-stop music and entertainment from all over the world! Enjoy performances from Nepal, Japan, Brazil, the UK, Scotland, the Caribbean and Africa. Learn Kendo and Tai Kwan Do, watch the art of Tai Chi and Belly Dancing, jive and rock. Be amazed by demonstrations of Origami and Calligraphy, while enjoying the gift and art stalls, and foods from around the world.
To kick things off there will be the monthly Artmart in the town centre on the Friday 24th June with stalls to tempt all tastes and ages.
A well established and increasingly popular specialist Art, Craft and Artisan Food market, the ArtMart established in 2010 will return to Folkestone town centre for it’s seventh year. A range of stalls in the precinct between Debenhams and W.H Smith, open between 10:00 – 17:00, the ArtMart is an excellent place to purchase a range of Art, Craft and Artisan Foods for yourself and special, unique gifts for others.
We are delighted to announce a partnership with Buckingham Covers, a Folkestone based company which designs, manufactures and sells exclusive first day covers and stamp sheets.
