Pop Up Opportunities

2023 Pop Up Opportunities

After the success of our Festive Food Village, an exclusively pop-up food & drink space brought in for the 2022 Festive Marketplace, we’re beginning to explore the possibility of short term, pop-up food and drink spaces across the site.

Businesses will need to be mobile, with their own equipment.

The right offer will be completely unique to what we already have on offer and will be able to operate entirely independently, though power and water can be provided.


  • Rental is charged based on a percentage of business turnover. Traders benefit from minimal fixed start-up and ongoing costs.
  • We’re delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to businesses looking try out their fare on the food focussed visitors to Folkestone Harbour.

    We’re currently creating a dedicated pop-up zone where we are excited to welcome a revolving selection of businesses to our site for the first time.

    Businesses interested in popping up at our site will have to be able to move their units on and off site.

    Pop up businesses will be provided water and electrics.

  • Please make sure you provide the following information:

    A short proposal of what you want to do which includes a clear description of the style of food and drink you want to offer.

    Tell us why you think you and your business is a good fit for Folkestone Harbour Arm.

    Your proposed menu.

    Indication of what drinks suppliers you intend to work with.

    A mood board to illustrate the look and feel of the space.

    A name for the business.

    Details about your previous experience in this area of work.

    If we like the look of your written proposal, we’ll ask to meet you, sample what you propose to offer and talk further about your proposal.

    If you are not successful this time round, but we like what you do, we will keep you in mind when new opportunities arise such as food festivals and market days, or when new spaces become available in the future.

  • We are very happy to answer any questions you may have and arrange a viewing before you submit your proposal. Please email hello@folkestoneharbourarm.co.uk to get in touch.
