2014: summer of colour

24 May – 21 September

Making Margate a hive of colour in summer 2014 – events, activities and vibrancy throughout the town and Thanet!

Visitors were invited to feel the joy of being by the sea in a colourful explosion of dance, performance, theatre, art and activity in the town and surrounding area Thanet. Inspired by Piet Mondrian and his ‘Mondrian and Colour’ exhibition at Turner Contemporary, whose love of colour changed painting.

A project initiated by Turner Contemporary, working with partners across Margate, Thanet and East Kent to bring people together through a celebration of colour.


Margate Festival 2014 was funded through a grant from the Esme Fairbairn Foundation and as part of the Arts Council funded “Cultural Destinations” project for East Kent.
