2016: SIght seeking

2 – 25 September

In its third year, the 2016 theme of the festival was ‘Sight Seeking’.

The programme encouraged you to look at familiar places in a new light, revealing a side of the town you might not have seen before; or if you were new to Margate, a chance to take an art detour on your day out. There was something for everyone here – whether you’re an adventurous art-goer or a family looking for something playful to get stuck into. 


Margate Festival 2016 was a partnership between Threshold Studios, Kent County Council, Turner Contemporary and Dreamland Margate.
