Before / during I mean, we all read about it in the Herald after they'd checked out... La Portman wasn't the most favoured guest of The Sandgate Hotel apparently. From The Mirror, don't go there though it's covered in microsoft adverts that make moving around it hard work.
STORMY PORT IS ON THE DARK SIDE Eva Simpson & Caroline Hedley
STAR Wars actress Natalie Portman has fallen for the dark side of the Force judging by the reaction of staff at Sandgate Hotel, Folkestone, Kent.
Filming The Other Boleyn Girl with Scarlett Johansson, Nat, 25, asked the hotel to shut the bar at 10pm, then disturbed other guests with 5am yoga sessions.
She persuaded staff to prepare a lavish party for her, Scarlett and crew but couldn't attend at the last minute.
One of the staff told us: "We were relieved when she left." Nat's people didn't answer our calls...
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fever of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were 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 Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper 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.
