Here on archdaily.com. CMS Secretary of State Andy Burnham, performs the official opening of our new venue on the 5th of March. Where's my invite? Big ups to Number 11 (not that one), who did invite me to their opening do on Thursday. Sorry I couldn't make it.
The building is the centrepiece of the city's arts-led regeneration programme spearheaded by client The Creative Foundation. The 1550 sqm includes a 220 seat, 500 standing multi-purpose auditorium for music, dance, theatre, film performances and conferences; ground floor foyer and exhibition space; first floor cafe / bar and a top floor business centre for start-ups in the creative industries.
They even make Tontine Street look quite vibrant in the pictures too!
Over to you, discussion about anything local, but please be considerate... Folkestone on TV, Kent gigs, find a flatmate, rent a room, news, what' new, local events, for sale, whatever... hmm this kinda slumped a bit didn't it? But it's still here after most of the other johnny-come-latelies gave up again! Folkestone Gerald was here before Folkestone was cool, and it'll still be here after! Probably. Email me if you want to do a deal, pauly @ this domain
