Diane Dever and The Decorators: Customs House: Urban Room Folkestone
As the first place where passengers arriving from Calais and Boulogne would pass through when setting foot on British soil, the Customs House in the 19th century was a grand building, and the epicentre of activity on the harbour. Occupying that site, Urban Room is an opportunity to re-engage with this history through a programme of discussion and workshops, a space that will hold the past in the present to learn and plan for the future. Traces of these events will be archived in the Urban Room library, a catalogue of knowledge including invited contributions from those involved in the transformation of Folkestone. If you would like to host a conversation, carry out your own enquiry, debate or urban workshop, or make a contribution to the Folkestone Urban Library, email check back soon to find out how to get involved.
