Gallery Hire

Our gallery space is large and industrial with high ceilings in the heart of Creative Folkestone, giving the perfect environment for a contemporary exhibition. There is access from both Tontine St and The Old High street st with Banksy's 'Art Buff' at the entrance. You'll struggle to find a better gallery space outside of London.

Hire Terms

We've made some changes to the rental terms for 2024, the most notable being the price, minimum duration, gap between bookings and marketing strategy.

Minimum hire time is 3 weeks and there will be at least a 2 week gap between each booking.

With 104 square meters of hanging space and 3.5 meter ceilings there's plenty of space for solo and collaborative exhibitions. With the industrial nature of the building there is also opportunity to suspend artwork from the ceilings.

 

Included with each booking:

- One open night/private view, alcohol included

- Open daily from 11am-5pm (Closed Tuesday)

- Select artworks featured on our website for one month.

- Organic social media promotion on Facebook and Instagram. 

- Paid adverts on Facebook and Instagram, running 4 weeks total. 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks during the exhibition.

- Promotional email sent to our growing mailing list, including regular buyers and visitors of the gallery.

- Vinyl window display.

The changes we've made for 2024 will allow us to spend a lot more time on the promotion of each event. The extra time between bookings will allow us plan and execute a full marketing strategy.

If you're interested in hiring the space, please send an email to info@folkestoneart.com with "Gallery hire" in the subject line. Please be patient, we have limited space in the calendar and need to look over all applications before responding.
