Well someone just emailed to suggest picking up a copy of "Coast To Coast" magazine (does it have Fred Dinenage and Fern Britten on the cover?) but you can also see what's going on the homepage of the Gerald...
MORE than sixty summer festivals and events are listed in the latest edition of Coast to Coast, the seasonal guide published jointly by the Discover Folkestone, Hythe and Romney Marsh tourism partnership and its across-Channel counterpart, Le Boulonnais.
Twenty thousand copies - 10,000 in English and the same number in French - have been produced for distribution on both sides of the Channel.
The guide is one of a number of initiatives by the Anglo-French public and commercial sector partnership to boost tourism to, in and between destinations in the 'Channel region'.
The project, part-funded by the EU, was co-ordinated by the Boulogne Shepway Co- operation Organisation (BOSCO) whose members include Shepway District Council and local authorities in and around Boulogne.
Discover Folkestone manager Chris Kirkham said that the guide aimed to encourage residents and visitors on both coasts to discover the great variety of attractions, festivals and events on offer at resorts on the opposite side of the Channel.
The guide can be picked up locally from Shepway District Council and Folkestone Town Council offices, Discover Folkestone information points, public libraries and some shops and hotels.
This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving here. 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 The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
