A chance for you to come and meet the local creative businesses and entrepreneurs that are shaping Folkestones economic future and making the Creative Quarter a vibrant place to live and work.
Businesses will give a 2 minute presentation about what they do, then join us in the bar for mingling, network and a well-earned beverage! Businesses confirmed so far include:
- The Workshop
- School for Creative Start Ups
- The Foundry
- Creative Foundation
- Davis 2 Davis
- Martello BC
- Bedonwell Counselling
- Charlton Athletic Community Trust
Then the rest of the weekend becomes a playground of open studios, family friendly workshops and delicious food and drink on offer. We look forward to seeing you.

This is part of my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here in approximately 2004. 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 was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I hear it was a useful 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 love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake paper 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 contact me if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
