CANCELLED Thu 14 Oct | FORTUNE HERE | The successful community campaign for a new Radnor Park

Thu 14 Oct 2021

Past Event

Unfortunately we have had to cancel this event as Sally is ill. We will endeavour to re-schedule, most likely in the Urban Room after the Triennial. 


Part of the Creative Folkestone Triennial, Fortune Here presents the story of how the local community successfully campaigned for a new play area and public space at Radnor Park.

Spaces are limited and pre-booking is essential, please sign up for a free ticket here.

Please note this event will take place inside the Creative Folkestone Triennial 2021 Artwork, Fortune Here, located on Marine Parade, Folkestone, CT20 1PX. 

The redevelopment of the Radnor Park play area, combined with additional public realm improvements, was achieved in no small part thanks to the work of the Radnor Park Community Group. Sally Hough will tell the story of a great example of a community working together successfully in Folkestone. What sparked the campaign? What were the key elements needed for success? What lessons can be learned for other groups?
