Smoking Apples Theatre Company – what Folkestone means to you

We’re really pleased to be working with Smoking Apples Theatre Company on their latest project ‘We Are More Alike than You Think We Are’!

They’re collecting stories about the people who live and work in Folkestone and mapping how you got here and why, and they’ll be here at the Museum on Saturday 23rd March (10am- 2pm) to do just that, asking:

  • What are your memories of Folkestone and how has it changed now?
  • What makes you proud to live or work here and how did you end up here?
This Drop In Session at Folkestone Museum is a chance to have an informal chat with one of the team and share some thoughts. If you’d like to bring something with you, like an object or a photograph, to help tell your story, please do!
Smoking Apples Theatre, an award winning puppetry and visual #theatre company (learn more about them by clicking HERE ). Based in Folkestone, they’re working on a new site-specific show which will explore the movement of people coming to the town, mapping the past, present and future. Partnering with local author, Ann Morgan, Folkestone Harbour Arm , Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN) and Folkestone Museum, We Are More Alike than You Think We Are will be performed in and around the Harbour, in August 2024.
