FMT Awarded Arts Council Funding

We are delighted to share that Arts Council England has awarded Folkestone Music Town a grant for its development in 2024. The grant will enable FMT to directly support local music venues and artists ‘to try something new’ through an exciting programme of gigs called ‘The Future Sound of Folkestone.’ An open call for proposals will be announced shortly. We are specifically looking for genres and artists which are currently underrepresented in the town’s music offer.

The grant will also enable the first audience survey of music goers in Folkestone and the surrounding area and there will be a series of training workshops for music professionals working locally. More information will be released later in the spring.
