Took a walk down Tontine Street hoping to check out what had replaced The Troubadour, and found a) whatever has replaced it (The Tontine Tavern?) was closed, and also The Lime Bar was closed. Wake up again Tontine Street!
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
