Regeneration to Date

Folkestone has benefited from considerable change over the past few years that has begun to reverse decades of decline. The old town has seen the emergence of the Creative Quarter, which has established a brand new community, providing a home for artisans, artists, retailers and a wide range of creative industries and digital media. The Creative Quarter also incorporates a new public park, a major sixth form centre and a performing arts venue, generating footfall and activity which helps to engender a vibrant atmosphere. Immediately adjacent to the harbour, new building and infrastructure has included the development of new restaurants, interactive fountains and facilities for sea sports. All of these have proved immensely popular, as has the opening of the Harbour Arm, from summer 2015, as a promenade open to the public. The harbour and old town areas are also the locations for several pieces in the Folkestone Artworks collection, originally commissioned for exhibitions in the Folkestone Triennial and now curated as permanent pieces that are free to view in the town’s public spaces. The fourth Folkestone Triennial will take place in late summer 2017.
