Come and see what the Creative Quarter is all about, see what some of these mysterious creative operations are up to... all weekend, 19th - 21st, all throughout Tontine Street and the Creative Quarter...

The Creative Quarter will be opening its doors once again this summer and welcoming the public to take a look behind the scenes of this thriving hub of creativity.

The weekend will feature presentations from our creative businesses, a Creative Quarter market, Folkestone Artworks tours, performances at Quarterhouse and a day of live music. Our resident artists will be sharing their skills and opening up their studios and of course a great selection of restaurants and caf矇s will be available for lunches and dinner. We aim to make this our biggest Open Quarter ever and need you!

If you would like to get involved please contact now! 65-69 Tontine Street, Folkestone, Kent, CT20 1JR 01303 858500 [2015-06-19 2015]

A play, a birthday treat, long running, had Art Malik in it and it was Frank Skinner's first night. Wyndhams Theatre, Charing Cross Road, London, WC2H 0DA [1999-07-26 1999]

Ray Davies was his own support act, busking Kinks numbers solo... Commercial Road, Southampton, , SO15 1GE 023 8071 1811 [1993-11-07 1993]

plus LA Guns and Love / Hate. The latter announced a "secret" gig they were doing the next day in London, I should have gone they were one of my fave bands of the day. Limeharbour, London E14 9TH [1991-11-22 1991]

Found the ticket now! I went to the gig on my own, then got the last train up to Rugby, where I was staying for college while on my HNC with Nixdorf. Can't find details anywhere online (so far). Much stage diving, one of my favourite ever gigs.
Thinking about this nearly 25 years later I'm not quite sure how I did this. Must have been a Sunday night, so I'd have left home in Portchester on the Sunday afternoon and got the train up as usual to Rugby, via London. But decided to stop in London and go to this gig, and then carry on up to Rugby after.
I do remember it being great, and being stage diving crazy. I have a clear memory of being up on the stage and preparing to throw myself back into the crowd yet again, when a young couple (a boy and a girl) grabbed my shoe; they were annoyed at the stagediving, as I would be now. I remember even what I was wearing, a t-shirt with my green plaid shirt over the top, with skinny black jeans and my massive nike trainers. At the time metallers wore tight jeans and big trainers and mine were nike white basketball boots with purple detail on. I think I had pink laces on mine.
What was I thinking to go to a gig like this midway between home and my digs in Rugby? After the gig I still had to go on to Euston, then train up to Rugby, possibly changing at Coventry, and then walk across Rugby to the digs where I was staying...
105 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0DT [1991-10-06 1991]
