Open Quarter 2022

Open Quarter is back! Come and say hello to Folkestone's Creative Quarter. Explore artist studios, party in the park and celebrate the Creative Quarter from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 July. Open Quarter is your opportunity to go behind the scenes, enjoy open studios, meet artists and party in the park.

Rediscover Folkestone’s Creative Quarter - explore an urban village of artists and creatives in the centre of sunny Folkestone this summer.

The weekend starts with Connecting Creatives on Friday night. Creatives will give micro-presentations in an informal setting, followed by a chance to network and chat.

We will then all be heading outside to explore the First Friday programme. The team behind Last Fridays have put together a bumper programme of events and exhibitions in and around the Creative Quarter for one night only.

Saturday 2 July is all about Open Studios. Artists, creatives, designers and makers will be opening the doors of their studios, offices and homes. Come and say hello to the artists and go behind the scenes of the Creative Quarter.

The evening of Saturday is the start of our music programme. Curated by the Quarter Collective, we will be enjoying a night of 808 beats and the very best hip hop, trap and drill artists around at 808s: Live.

The fun continues on Sunday with Parkfest. The Quarter Collective have put together a packed programme of family-friendly music, workshops, food and so much more. Spend the afternoon enjoying the sights, the sounds and (hopefully) the sun.

Everyone’s invited. Save the dates, and click through the links to see the full weekend programme.
