folkestonegerald.com/folkestone/upload/Forbach_final_poster.jpg We are quite lucky to have an opportunity like this because the orchestra, consisting of 85 musicians, are currently French National Champions at their class and the conductor is internationally recognized. They are putting on the concert free of charge, because the trip has been organized themselves, funded by Forbach (The French town they represent). In addition to this, we have successfully applied to use the Leas Cliff Hall free of charge for the day. Therefore the 1 entrance fee will cover the promotional costs and any extra will go towards providing refreshments for the orchestra. I hope that by offering this type of event at such a low price, everyone will have the opportunity to attend.
If you are interested in classical music, this is an excellent opportunity to see it performed to a high standard on your doorstep. Alternatively if you are just fan of music, with tickets at just 1, it might be worth a try.
This is part of my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
