Folkestone Book Festival

This November, we are delighted to present a brand-new festival ideal for these strange times. Our new festival, Autumn Reads, will be a 4-day exploration of celebrated artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman’s Modern Nature.

From Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 November 2020 join us as we come together for a series of online events and activities that explore the themes held within Jarman’s diaries. Autumn Reads: Modern Nature will explore ideas of memoir, art, activism, gardening and more in creative ways.

Autumn Reads is completely free to attend but you will need to book for the workshops and quiz. 

Folkestone Book Festival will return in 2021, until then we have a new festival to enjoy.

All of the events for Autumn Reads are available online for free. To watch the films and talks, all you have to do is head to the Creative Folkestone YouTube or Facebook pages at the time of the event. 

Worried you might miss something? Don't worry, we will be keeping everything online for a month so that you can revisit all of the talks.
