Those who are signed up to our weekly newsletter (get regular updates from Folkestone Harbour Arm here) will know that we intended to start the Folkestone Harbour Arm 2020 Season on the 27th of March. However, circumstances have changed and in common with many other venues and attractions we must reflect official advice to encourage social distancing by postponing the start of our programme for 2020.
Although we will not be staging events that draw large crowds, as an open-air space the Harbour Arm will remain open for promenading with social distancing. We hope this will enable you to enjoy the fresh sea air and incomparable views as the days get longer and the weather improves.
Folkestone Harbour’s very own outdoor screen first opened to the public back in June 2018. We screened The FIFA World Cup and Wimbledon Championships until the 15th July, and visitors were able to enjoy all the games for free. The Harbour Screen would become a hub of tense excitiment when England games came around, with thousands of fans embracing the sunshine and supporting the boys. This was followed by a diverse film programme which ran 25th July - 26th September.
In 2019, the Harbour Screen massivly increased it's sport & film programme. An inclusive collection of sports were shown, from the Netball World Cup and Women's FIFA World Cup to Wimbledon and the historic Cricket World Cup. Alongside this was an extensive film programme; 55 films were shown between May and September.
2020 will see the Harbour Screen focus on it's Summer of Sport. Details are TBA.Sign up to the Harbour Screen newsletter
