What was / is The Sound Lounge then? This case study from CABE, regarding the building of the SAGA HQ in 1998 mentions it. Did it come and go? Or is it now known by another name?
Already there are early signs of success. On the harbour is Chummy's seafood stall. Strange Cargo, a carnival and celebratory arts company is established in its offices and gallery in the Old High Street. The Sound Lounge, a music venue, has recently opened in Tortine Street. The Metropole Arts Centre provides a focus for the visual arts and acts as a motor for the creative quarter, the plans for a new sculpture park on The Leas and the burgeoning Folkestone Literary Festival.
This is my website The FG that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving here. 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 becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
