Our First, Purpose Built Festive Market

We’re delighted to announce that this winter, for the first time ever, Folkestone Harbour Arm will become home to a purpose built Festive Market.

The Festive Marketplace will begin Saturday 27th November and then run every weekend in the run up to Christmas, as well as the 23rd & 24th of December. Our vision is to create a new Festive Destination for Kent, including a programme of Christmas events including bands, choirs and films. Traders in the Goods Yard will also be offering the very best of their food and drink offers with a festive twist.

This will be a major addition to Folkestone Harbour Arm’s seasonal offering and we can’t wait to get started.

A first for Folkestone Harbour Arm. A New Festive Destination for Kent.
A new, beautiful destination

We’re delighted to be able to share that we are bringing a big, beautiful Christmas Tree to Folkestone Harbour Arm this year as part of the Festive Marketplace.

At 28 feet tall, this will be quite the statement piece, sat in the very centre of our collection of new huts. This model of tree has previously been displayed at St Paul’s Cathedral and Old Trafford, so we’re incredibly excited to be introducing it to Folkestone.
