Join in the Arlington Margate Events

Since our last news update, we’re pleased to report that we’ve managed to raise almost £3000 from our target of £5000 to cover our legal fees for the upcoming Public Inquiry!
The Inquiry starts November 6th. We need to ensure that evidence supporting a sustainable Margate seafront is put before the Planning Inspector. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated. No matter how small, every single donation has really helped.

Arlington Exhibition

The Arlington Margate exhibition at Streets Ahead Margate community hub space at 60 High Street is open. We’re currently open from 12pm – 3.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays. If we can get more volunteers to man the shop we can be open even more. The exhibition features the Village in the Sky by photographer Duncan Smith.
Featured alongside we have the 1960s original East Kent Times 16 page Arlington special feature containing pictures and information celebrating the construction of Margate’s infamous icon. Ever wanted to know how many cups of tea were drunk during Arlington’s construction? We have the answer.

Arlington Margate Film Night

We really love the Hydropathe film club on Mondays at the bijou Tom Thumb Theatre, Cliftonville. So, we’re very proud that on Monday October 22nd there is an Arlington Margate special film night. We can’t tell you what film it will be, but it is an Arlington Margate special. Please come along and show some love for Arlington and Margate or even both! There is a bar, there’s popcorn and the theatre is beautiful.

Doors open at 6.30 for music and drinks, the films start at 7.30pm. £2.50 to join.
