Folkestone is a Kentish port town by the English Channel. Some of its major landmarks include the seaside harbour and the Leas on the cliffs above the beach. Here you will also find Martello Tower, which was built in 1806 as a defence against Napoleon.
Every three years these landmarks are joined by some other stunning sights as part of the Folkestone Triennial . Established in 2002, artists are invited to use the town as a canvas, utilising the public spaces to reflect local and global issues. While most of these are temporary installations, others become a permanent feature, meaning every three years, a new landmark is created.
Folkestone's fifth Triennel runs between the 30th August - 2nd November with a pre-introductionary talk on the 25th August. There will be many other talks, artwork tours, film screenings, and workshops throughout the event. The screenings are £7.50 adult or £5.50 concessions, but everything else is free.
