Folkestone Quarterhouse is a Creative Foundation project, run alongside the Folkestone Triennial, Folkestone Artworks, Creative Quarter and home venue for Folkestone Book Festival. Quarterhouse shares the Creative Foundation’s dedication to enabling the regeneration of Folkestone through creative activity. The Creative Foundation believes that everyone is creative and creativity has the power to change people and places for the better.
Quarterhouse offers weekly programme of the best theatre for children and families, comedians, gigs and talks. At the core of Quarterhouse’s work are its plans to build local audiences for contemporary performance, including theatre, dance and work in the public realm. This is being done through a series of co-curated festivals taking place throughout the year, developed in partnership with people and organisations in Folkestone. Most of the work we programme and artists we seek to develop will have a direct relationship with one of our festivals, including WOW (Women of the World), Normal? Festival of the Brain, Outlands (festival of outdoor art) and SALT (festival of sea and the environment). The inspiration for the festivals comes both from local partners and the work we see artists producing.

Acute social and political humour from the award-winning stand-up, who repeatedly pokes fun at her own righteous anger, this time taking to task Britain's departure from the EU.
